DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Deep, dense red. Intense, brooding primary notes of dark plum fruit and dark chocolate which are lightly seasoned with vanillin oak.

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested in April and fermented on skins for 7 days. The wine then spent 18 months in French and American Puncheons prior to bottling.

Cellaring

The Rutherglen Durif 2016 is an intensely rich and concentrated wine. Ideal now with full flavoured char grilled meats, or cellar for 7-10 years, when an aged rib eye will be more than suitable.

Technical

The Grapes: Durif grapes from our Rutherglen vineyards.
Date Tasted: March 2018
T.A (g/l): 6.4g/l
pH: 3.49pH

Deep, dense red. Intense, brooding primary notes of dark plum fruit and dark chocolate which are lightly seasoned with vanillin oak.

Palate:

A powerful and rich full bodied wine, with dark plum fruits coming to the forefront to fill the mouth and slowly give way to the texture of the wine which provides a fine dry tannin grip and balance.
