Purveyors of fine grape juice
2017 La Petite Mort SV granite belt, australia

La Petite Mort is the black sheep of the Bent Road Wine family which hale from Ballandean on the Granite Belt, Queensland.
This cool-climate blend of Shiraz with 2.5% Viognier, is more reminiscent of French Syrah, medium bodied and savoury, highlighting the typical peppery qualities of Granite Belt Shiraz. Made without oak maturation, 100% of the tannin structure is grape derived. The prolonged post-ferment maceration results in a full mid-palate of long-chained tannins that are smooth and supple. Flavours and aromas of dark fruits and berries ‒ unhindered by influence of oak.
Grapes were sourced from two estate vineyards in the Granite Belt; the north sloping church block & the west facing Mary’s block at an average altitude of approximately 800m. The soils are composed of a mix of gravelly & sandy decomposed granite & the vines were grown on Vertical Shoot Positioned trellising.
