Bink 'Je Suis' Petit Verdot 2022
100% Petit Verdot fruit was sourced from the same Langhorne Creek vineyard as the Cabernet Franc - the Watkins Vineyard has clay over limestone and the maritime influence of nearby Lake Alexandria is keenly felt. Fruit was picked in late March and fully destemmed before natural fermentation. The wine was then pressed to seasoned French barrique for eight months, then bottled in late January.
