La Petit Mort Amphora Saperavi 2017

This macabre, mysterious wine comes from the Granite Belt in the far south of Queensland.

Description

La Petit Mort Amphora Saperavi 2017

La Petit Mort Amphora Saperavi 2017 is a  macabre, mysterious wine that comes from the Granite Belt in the far south of Queensland.

After a 195 day long slumber in amphora, this inky black Georgian variety finds a sensuality and a seductive nature when fermented in earthenware as opposed to wood.

It’s rich but fresh, a guilty pleasure to be enjoyed over a candle lit dinner with a significant other.

The Winery

La Petite Mort is the black sheep of the Bent Road Wine family which hale from Ballandean on the Granite Belt, Queensland. Purchased in 2000 by the current proprietors/wine maker, the property encompasses 40 hectares of vines, winery, wilderness and granite boulders along a kilometre of frontage onto the pristine Severn River. Perched on the western reaches of the Great Dividing Range at an altitude of over 750m, many people are surprised to discover that our climate is both cool and continental – in fact, Ballandean is one of the coolest growing regions in Australia. This cool climate (and possibly our taste for European wines) lend subtlety and elegance to our wines, often expressing spicy, savoury notes and generally lower alcohol than some of our broader ‘Southern Sisters’.

Our absurdly picturesque setting plays host not only to great wine, but an abundance of other cultural indulgences and a great many guests! Whilst we don’t operate a cellar door because we split our time between the ‘Dean and Bris-angeles, we are always thrilled to receive guests when we are at home on the ‘farm’ and as a household full of consummate foodies, cooks and even a chef there is always something delicious on the hob!

The Label

La Petite Mort is the kind of dinner guest who holds court in any crowd. With striking looks and a bold agenda, LPM knowingly draws and holds the attention of other guests and whilst suave, sophisticated and to the point; the label is not afraid to offend a few people along the way. La Petite Mort – and we all know what that really means – is a master of euphemism and thinly veiled double entendre and has a juicy story or crude limerick for every situation.

Based on a photograph by prominent Australian Photographer Ray Cook, the La Petite Mort label makes quite a statement. It’s up to you, the observer, to decide what that statement is to you but it should certainly evoke the feeling that this is NOT your average bottle of Chardy! As the conduit for our alternative and/or experimental wines, the label is very much intended to prepare the prospective drinker for the fact that this wine may have a surprise or two up its sleeve.
