  1. :

    One of the authorized varieties of Bordeaux, Petit Verdot is normally blended in small proportions for colour and aroma, but its often avoided due to its high acidity. Ontario is now dabbling, but even in the hot 2007 vintage there is not enough ripeness. Look for peppery, green, blackcurrant and meaty aromas. Quite lean and tart on the palate, but it does have very good length. Worth exploring and cellaring if you are following advances in Ontario wine.
