Wine Lore: In the old world, wine blends are often structured by tradition and wine law for consistency and quality. But Washington’s new world wines have gained headlines around the world for quality and creative wine styles, especially for the non-traditional blends that we have the freedom to make. SPV is that blend of Sangiovese, a common Italian grape, and Petit Verdot, a traditional blending grape from France’s Bordeaux region.
These varieties excelled in 2015, our hottest season on record, showing a good amount of spice and floral notes. At Daven Lore, we blended these two uncommon varieties as a co-ferment, resulting in our SPV, a Special Petro Vintage, called that to honor our logo, Petro, a petroglyph of the coyote that enjoys eating grapes during harvest. Enjoy!
