Petit Verdot. The quiet air of effortless simplicity….

In an era when everyone’s obsessed with talking I guess it was only a matter of time before our attention turned to the introvert. Several book releases and broadsheet reviews on the subject has made it official; it’s not cool to shout to be heard.
.
It’s a trend that’s already made it onto the wine shelves at M&S with their new Barossa Valley Petit Verdot from Australia whose sleek black screwcap and understated label design gives the quiet air of effortless simplicity only achievable in women’s fashion magazines. Its overshadowed presence on the shelf hides the intensity of the wine to such an extent you can’t help but think this is a wine that M&S actively want to keep a secret.
.
Au contraire. This is a wine worth sharing, a grape variety worth noticing, that quietly speaks for itself as much in a blend as it does here on it’s own. Open effortlessly and with quiet confidence that in the era of the introvert you can relax and let this wine do all the talking.
.
In a sip; Full bodied, velvety, blue & black fruits, oaky vanilla flavours, perfect on its own, with spicy food and rich meaty dishes. £9.99 at M&S.
