2016 Gartelmann Georg Petit Verdot
Tasting Notes: Attracting you straight away with its deep inky burgundy colour. The nose then lures you further; very spicy and peppery, with dusty blackcurrants and mulberry coulis. Inhale deeply and gently exhale, you'll see hints of violets and chocolate and cassis. Take a sip… the palate is dense and rich, with soft, approachable tannins. Let it slide down the throat with its sweet blackcurrant finish, touch of aniseed and fennel. A deliciously lingering finish to bring you back again and again. Go the next glass.
Food matching: Think about it with slow cooked beef, spinach lasagne, roasted Mediterranean vegetables with
hummus, a good Emmental with dark bread
Cellaring: Great from 2020, cellar max to 2026
