Petit verdot

Petit verdot is a variety that is getting some serious attention in most of the warmer wine regions in Australia. James Halliday rates two PVs at 94 points; Anderson at Rutherglen and Pirramirra in the McLaren Vale are his top picks.

The variety is traditionally used in Bordeaux as a minor component in blends, but it is finding a new role as a straight varietal in Australia. There are about a hundred Australian Wineries using PV as a varietal or in blends so if you look out for it you might find some.

have some Kingston Estate 1999 for sale at $5.95 per 375ml bottle, or you can get some 2002 McGuigan for $11.95

Hello, I want to meet some other local people who, like me, are interested in wine & particularly australian red wine. I've found this site (australian red wine). Are there any other ways of meeting similar people?
Many thanks
