2018 Durif

$42.00

Available:In stock

Our single vineyard Durif is a premium dry, full-bodied wine. The ultimate choice for any lover of big reds, it expresses blue and black fruits, and is well-structured with an intense acidic spine. Enjoy its vibrant and sophisticated cool climate expression, a gorgeous inky purple with a crimson meniscus in the glass.

 

Master of Wine Peter Scudamore-Smith: This wine is broody; swirl it to open up; there is forest floor, lots of exotic spice and mint sweetness. Yet the most powerful expression is the blue and black fruits which layer my mouth; that’s the flavour of Durif—I can assure you there is plenty. A gratuitously full-bodied variety yet that is tempered by growth in the Granite Belt, meaning more soft tannin focus and less grip—a powder-coated tongue is not an extreme sensation from this French variety. Resounding taste, a mouthful.
