wines, which are new to the UK market, are produced by Salena Estate Wines
in South East Australia. The Gurra Creek range is an everyday range ideal for quaffing and comprises four varietals. The grapes were crushed and fermented on skins under controlled temperatures for extraction of deep colour, fruit flavours and to produce a rich full bodied structure. The fermenting wine was drained and gently pressed from skins once dry. The wine was stored under controlled temperature conditions to preserve fresh fruit characters.
Gurra Creek Petit Verdot is rich and full bodied this wine and exhibits an intense colour. The nose shows typical violets, dried petals and herbs. The palate shows a rounded and full, yet pleasingly supple, structure. While young this wine exhibits varietal dried flower, herb and violet notes, however, with age there is the potential for extra complexity with the development of interesting tobacco leaf and black olive characters.
