Kingston Estate ‘Echelon’ Petit Verdot 2012

The Echelon range showcases Kingston Estate’s limited release varietal wines, considered the pinnacle of each vintage.

Only parcels of wine displaying exceptional fruit vibrancy and intensity of flavour make the final selection for this label.  The wines are assessed not only for their youthful qualities, but an ability to develop for their full potential with further bottle maturation.

As an innovator of Petit Verdot, Winemaker, Bill Moularadellis, has drawn upon Australia’s largest single planting of this European variety after pioneering Kingston’s planting in the 1990s.  Bill pioneering legacy was instrumental in the Riverland earning its reputation as the signature growing region of Australian Petit Verdot.

The palate is rich with violets and dark fruit up front and plums and prunes on the mid palate.  Finishing with complex dark chocolate and coffee flavours backed up by firm tannins.
