DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Rich, vibrant deep red. Intense, primary black plum fruit, graphite, rich caramel and nutty oak.

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested through March and April and fermented on skins for 10 days. The wine then spent 18 months in French and American Puncheons prior to blending and bottling.

Cellaring

The Rutherglen Durif 2019 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: April 2021
