About this wine

收穫20分鐘內,將莊稼種植的葡萄輕輕碾碎,然後轉移到溫控小的不銹鋼罐中進行24小時冷浸。用兩種酵母接種葡萄酒以增強顏色和適度發酵速率。發酵的前半部分的發酵溫度保持較低(75°F),然後升至85°F。這有助於增強水果特性並減少過多的單寧。在乾燥後,將葡萄酒分別桶裝陳釀13個月。將最終混合物再桶裝13個月。
The estate grown grapes were gently crushed 20 minutes after harvest and transferred to small temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks for a 24-hour cold soak. The wine was inoculated with two kinds of yeast for enhanced color and moderate fermentation rates. Fermentation temperature was kept low (75F) for first half of the fermentation then let rise to 85F. This helps to enhance fruit characters and minimize excessive tannins. After pressing at dryness, wines were barrel aged separately for 13 months. The final blend was barrel aged for another 13 months.

  • Tasting Notes:  The inaugural release of our Matchbook Estate Bottled Petit Verdot   showcases the advantage of the Dunnigan Hills’ long growing season. The varietal   characteristics of this Bordeaux grape develop fully when allowed to slowly ripen   well into the fall. The beautiful dark garnet color leads to inviting  aromas of clove   and brown spices. Dense flavors of plum, violets and mocha are layered over tart   cherry and blueberry. Strong tannins are tamed by an appealing  fruit sweetness.
獎 項

“Petit Verdot could be Dunnigan Hills’s best varietal.  It has firm tannins and gives great   structure to wines, but ours also shows beautiful aromas of violet and great fruit expression of   blueberries. Depth, structure, aroma and flavor- this wine has it all.”
