Petit Verdot, traditionally used in blends, is a sophisticate of a grape. Intensely floral and fruity it also has mild coffee and chocolate notes. Mint, eucalyptus and herbal notes and a luscious lift to the finish making this wine eminently drinkable. Classic, unfussy meat dishes will go hand in hand with this lovely wine.

Timeless wines that are the spirit and soul of our terroir at Finca La Anita. Extraordinary wines to drink and age.
This Petit Verdot is vinified from carefully selected grapes at our Finca in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. The vines are over 40 years old located around 900 meters above sea level and have a low yield (4 to 5 t / ha).
A classic vintage in Mendoza; dry, fresh and sunny with moderate yields throughout the region from the lowest to the highest areas. This, together with lower rainfall than usual, resulted in fruit with optimal balance, good levels of natural acidity, lovely aromatic expression and soft tannins.
Fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected cultivated yeast. Malolatic fermentation occurs spontaneously at controlled temperatures.
