Product Description

One of the first wineries to plant Petit Verdot in Spain, the Casa de la Ermita winery from the DO Jumilla is the producer of Casa de la Ermita Petit Verdot.

The grapes were picked up by hand and selected on site, and then they were cold macerated for some days before fermenting in stainless steel tanks. This Spanish red wine fermented for 15 to 20 days, and after that it was transferred into French oak barrels. There, Casa de la Ermita 2012 completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 12 months.

Seasoned by the years, this varietal Petit Verdot is mature and elegant.

We suggest that you decant this red wine from Jumilla 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Casa de la Ermita Petit Verdot has a bright violet colour with a garnet rim.


Elegant and richly layered, this Crianza red wine is really fresh, with plenty of balsamic and herbal nuances, juicy black fruit, and notes of spices, toast and flowers. This Petit Verdot is certainly characterful.


Bold and full-bodied, but not overpowering. The years have taken this wine of Casa de la Ermita to a very interesting place. Crisp acidity, solid tannins -one of the features of the Petit Verdot variety- and a seamless combination of fruit and oak. Finish is long and complex, with a characteristic bitter note.

Our personal opinion

The red wine Casa de la Ermita Petit Verdot 2012 proves that the always finicky Petit Verdot variety has successfully adapted to the region of Jumilla.
