2009 Gartelmann 'Jorg's' VP
Gartelmann “VP” is a fortified Wine, made with a nod to the famous Portuguese style. Given three years maturation in oak, the style relies less on overt sweetness and more on a refined tannin structure and finely balanced spirit integration.
Cellaring: Drinking remarkably well for a young wine and will mature gracefully for twenty years or more.
Winemaking: Petit Verdot from the Hunter Valley was blended with a Rutherglen blend of Duriff and Shiraz, making a final blend of 58% Petit Verdot, 32% Duriff and 10% Shiraz.
