Petit Ruby Cabernet (Riverland, Australia)
AUSTRALIA: LE2017, JAN 2018
AVAILABLE JANUARY 2018
In the Lower Murray oasis of south Australia you will find the Riverland.
Spanning across Victoria and New South Wales, and basking in the
continental climate, bountiful vineyards ripen during the sunny dry
days of the season, while the Murray River winds through this unocial
“super zone” providing much needed irrigation.
A true gem, PETIT RUBY CABERNET is a blend of Petit Verdot and
Ruby Cabernet. The Ruby Cabernet takes the best qualities of its
parents, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan, creating a structured,
robust wine with soft tannins, while the Petit Verdot brings intriguing
flavours of dark berries and vanilla. Elegant fruit flavours of currant,
juicy plum and dark berries complemented by notes of spicy ground
black pepper with hints of herb and vanilla, make this medium-full
bodied wine a delight to enjoy with grilled meats. Try it with succulent
rib eye steak for a wonderful weekend treat, or barbecue burgers for
an equally delicious pairing. Having an Italian night and want to
switch up the wine? PETIT RUBY CABERNET is delicious with classics
like meat lover’s pizza and spaghetti Bolognese.
