Deeply coloured with lifted berry aromatics and a savoury yet surprisingly soft palate. An excellent example of modern Rutherglen Durif. Deeply coloured with lifted berry aromatics and a savoury rather than heavy palate which is full and surprisingly soft, but carrying the typical solid Durif tannin structure.


Durif is such a local hero that it is sometimes called Rutherglen Durif. The variety is a cross of Peloursin and Shiraz and it prospers almost exclusively in North East Victoria. Our long, warm autumn days give the grapes plenty of time to develop their intense colour and rich flavours.


With full flavours and Durif like dense structure it will repay careful cellaring for a decade or even more. The full flavour and firm tannins of this dry red wine will complement rich, decadent meat dishes such as slow-braised ox cheeks.


 


 

The fruit was fermented in our old open fermenters using a mix of inoculated and wild fermentation. A long maceration of 3 weeks on skins was followed by pressing  off in our old 1880's basket press. The wine was matured for 18 months in a mix of stainelss steel tank and oak puncheons (15% new oak) prior to bottling.
