St Leonards Vineyard 'The Doctor' Durif 2015 Rutherglen

 

95 points / 5 stars

 

Intensely coloured and immensely delicious, this gorgeous rendition displays blackberry, dark plum, cocoa, hazelnut and vanilla notes on the nose. The palate is superbly concentrated and weighted, delivering waves of delectable flavours and rich texture, wonderfully framed by fine, chalky tannins. The wine is sumptuous and gratifying. At its best: now to 2025. AU$28.00. www.stleonardswine.com.au. March 2018.
