When the talented Bill Moularadellis first planted Petit Verdot, his fellow Australian winemakers called him crazy. In fact, one visitor peered into the fermentation tank and declared that the lush, dark concoction inside was ink, not wine. And the winery’s been known as the ‘Ink Shed’ ever since.
Decades later, Bill’s bold Petit Verdots are loved the world over. He’s earned the nickname ‘Mr. Petit Verdot’ and boasts the largest Petit Verdot vineyard in Australia. As you’ll taste with Ink Shed, this historic Bordeaux grape (prized for its depth of flavor and traditionally used to give richness to blends), takes on new life Down Under. Definitely a wine lovers of super-rich reds should try.
True to its name, Ink Shed shows a dark purple in the glass. A generous splash of Shiraz (Australia’s flagship grape) adds berry-oomph to the rich, black-fruit aromas and flavors, while barrel aging imparts warm spice notes. On the palate, silky-smooth tannins give way to a complex, lingering finish. A perfect partner to hearty meat dishes – from grilled steak to spicy game sausages.
