Eloquesta Shiraz Petit Verdot 2009

Stuart Olsen – the man behind Eloquesta wines – is a self-taught winemaker who (according to the press release) loves “deeply coloured, soft and perfumed wines.” He only makes one wine per year – foot treaded and then matured ‘sur lie’ in a combination of French, Hungarian and Russian oak “on healthy, champagne yeast in a refrigerated shipping container”. I tasted the wines first and liked them; I read this later and liked them even more. The wines are mostly shiraz and petit verdot with a dab of viognier.
