DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Our Shiraz Durif is a blend of two grape varieties synonymous with Rutherglen. Shiraz provides the full berry flavours and durif, the ironstone backbone. - Colin & Julie Campbell

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested early in March and fermented on skins for seven to eight days. After pressing the wine was matured for nine months in French and American oak casks before blending and bottling.

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.

Palate:

Shiraz is the predominant variety providing depth of rich, ripe plum fruit on the palate. The Durif used offers balance and fine grained tannins, also adding dark cherry, earthy ironstone flavours.
