This dry red wine is all about classic Durif richness and power without the decade-long wait for drinking perfection. Full-bodied and packed with intense berry, spice and dark chocolate flavours. It wouldn’t be Durif without tannins, but careful winemaking has ensured that these are well integrated and supple. The palate is richly flavoured, complemented by Durif's firm tannins are very well suited to hearty decadent meat dishes.


Our Rutherglen Durif is a wonderful red wine for ageing and this vintage of Durif has plenty of tannin and enough acidity to keep the wine balanced and improving for 5 to 8 years. However it will throw some sediment so is best decanted before serving.

The Durif fruit was fermented in our historic open vats, hand plunged, pressed through the 1883 basket press and then barrel aged for 18 months. This is a wine of outrageous colour, freshness and intensity. Inky-dark and opaque through the glass, just tilt it far enough over and a strikingly vibrant purple rim can be glimpsed.

Developed by Dr Francois Durif a little over a 100 years ago by crossing Shiraz and the almost unknown Peloursin variety, it was intended for the warm, dry climates of Southern France. It is no surprise then that it has flourished in Rutherglen, North East Victoria where long, warm Autumn days give the grapes plenty of time to develop their intense colour and rich flavours.
