From the first plantings of Durif in the Swan Valley, the grapes are handpicked, destemmed and crushed into small batch open fermenters . Gently macerated with carefully managed ferment to maximise flavour and tannin structure. Matured in new and old oak for 12 months to create added complexity and depth of flavour.
A richly flavoured full-bodied wine of distinction with intense mulberry and blackberry characters with a full palate and lingering chocolate notes. The tannins are firm and provide great structure to this wine. Durif is a relative of Shiraz and originates in France.
Perfect match to rich tomato based pasta or red meat dishes such as beef or venison
Ready to be enjoyed now but can be carefully cellared for 3-5 years for added complexity
