PETITE SIRAH QUICK NOTES

APPEARANCE: A deep, dark wine with a purple hue and ruby rim.

NOSE: Plum, blackberries and French oak. The intense fruit aromas are by hints of vanilla and nutmeg.

PALATE: Dark fruit, dark chocolate and liquorice spice. The rich tannins with a seamless acidity is a combination that carries on to a long finish. Soft and inviting to any wine lover.

PAIRING: Drinks well on its own, but pairs well with rich dishes such as lamb roast or ribeye steak and dark chocolate deserts.

AGEING POTENTIAL: Drinkable right now, can age 10 to 12 years.

VITICULTURAL ANALYSIS

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.

Mischa is quickly becoming famous for our world class Petite Sirah. This full bodied wine is the result of extensive care given to a small block of grapes. Very small, dark and thick skinned berries result in an intense wine packed full of complex flavours and amazing drinkability. The substantial phenolic expression in this wine gives this wine proper age-ability so it can be cellared to become a future classic.
