From the winery:
Petrichor (pet-ri-kor) n. the scent of rain on dry earth
PETRICHOR ORGANIC estate FRUIT is intensely site driven, displaying vibrant color and aromatics, sturdy tannins and natural acidity. There is a decided energy in Petrichor wines that we like to refer to as ‘plugged in’ and its electric ruby quality associated with great balance and energy in fruit is undeniably unique to its roots.
