PETITE SIRAH QUICK NOTES
APPEARANCE: A deep, dark wine with a wonderful purple hue and a rich ruby rim.
NOSE: Intense aromas of plums and black cherry followed by subtle hints of blackberries and sweet French oak.
PALATE: Full, rich and deeply satisfying. Intense dark fruit flavours with subtle flavours of oak and dark chocolate.
AGEING: Perfectly drinkable right now, but can benefit from 10 to 12 years of proper bottle ageing.
A black grape variety originally planted is the Rhône Valley in France and is also known as Durif. The cultivar is known to produce intensely coloured and highly tannic wines and thus is usually used in blends to bulk up a wine’s colour or phenolics.
On Mischa we produce a deeply coloured Petite Sirah which also expresses beautiful, fruity flavours. This is why it be bottled as a single cultivar wine, simply because it is too good not to.
