- Mercer Estate’s 2015 Small Lot Petit Verdot
2015 Small Lot Petit Verdot which takes the top position on the list of ‘5 best wines to pour at your Halloween party’, lets out jumpy floral aromas. Along with rose petals, you can sense notes of blueberries and wet stone minerality. On the mouth, this Petit Verdot varietal is full of powdery tannins. It has a bright acidity, which gives a lift to the finish – bringing the floral notes back up.
The fruit for this wine is developed at the Spice Cabinet Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. The grapes were twofold arranged, first in the vineyard, of course at the winery. The organic product was not squashed so as to save however much entire berry as could reasonably be expected. The wine is aged in small open-top fermenters with twice day by day punch downs. In the wake of depleting the wine and squeezing the skins, the wine was racked to a mix of new and utilized French oak barrels. The wine was matured in barrel for 30 months before being mixed together.
Only 91 cases produced, released first to Carma Club members in May 2018. Available only in our Mercer Tasting Rooms (Prosser and Georgetown-Seattle).
