Glen Carlou, Petit Verdot & Tannat Blend
By Glen Carlou
Origin: Paarl, Coastal Region, South Africa
Blend: petit verdot, tannat
This wine is extremely dark red in appearance with light cured cherries and hints of tobacco and sandalwood on the nose. Juicy berries compliment the dark chocolate and slightly oak flavours of this complex, full bodied wine which finishes with soft and silky tannins.
This limited release wine was crafted using varieties known for their high tannin concentrations and is well-known for exhibiting spicy characters. These varieties are generally used as blending components and mostly in small amounts.
