$28.00 CELLAR CLUB
$25.20

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Deep, dense red. Intense, brooding primary notes of red and black plum fruit integrated with some 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 2018 is an intensely rich and concentrated wine. Whilst young it is best to decant or aerate for an hour or so to let the wine breathe. Delicious to enjoy with full flavoured char grilled meats, or cellar for up to 10 years, when an aged rib eye will be more than suitable.

The Grapes: Durif grapes from our Rutherglen vineyards.
Date Tasted: December 2019
Alcohol: 14.5%
T.A (g/l): 6.5g/l

Deep, dense red. Intense, brooding primary notes of red and black plum fruit integrated with some oak.

Palate:

A powerful and rich full bodied wine, with velvety dark black 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. Good mid palate weight, grippy fine tannins. Chocolate/mocha oak integration.
