Shiraz Durif 2015

Tasting Notes

Vibrant Dark Crimson.  Attractive lifted nose with a broad spectrum of fruit including mulberry and blood plum with hints of fennel and integrated cedary oak.  Shiraz is the predominant variety providing depth of ripe plum and mulberry fruit on the palate. Durif is used for complexity adding dark cherry, earthy ironstone flavours and fine grained, lingering tannins.

Winemaking

Fruit was harvested early in March and then fermented on skins for approximately seven days. After blending, the wine was matured for approx six months in French and American oak casks.

Cellaring

This wine is medium bodied with fresh acidity and will continue to develop over the next three to five years with careful cellaring. It’s the ideal wine to share with family and friends at a BBQ or with wood fired pizza.

"Our Shiraz Durif is a blend of two grape varieties synonymous with Rutherglen. Shiraz provides the full berry flavours and durif, the firm tannin finish."  Colin Campbell
