Tasting Notes

This unique wine is produced as a single-vineyard Petit Verdot.

In the mouth it starts as a giant of a wine fresh, floral and robust, yet through the mid-pallet the dark, spicy fruit is revealed ending with a silky smooth finish making it a totally enjoyable wine to sit and sip.

Perky pairs well with spicy foods and it is a natural fit for rich meat dishes such as grilled steak, spicy pork, veal, lamb and all types of game and sausage. Naturally it is also perfect with hard and semi hard cheeses.

A great wine to cellar. You should keep Perky stored well for at least three years before opening, decant it when you do and only share it with people you love.

A difficult grape to grow, this rare variety is typically the last harvested, sometimes as much as two weeks after Cabernet Sauvignon.
