06 Durif Magnum
The Family Cellar Durif is a marriage of magnificent fruit from sustainable, old vineyards and traditional, hand-crafted winemaking techniques. Available in this stunning magnum it makes a gorgeous gift.
Durif is a cross between Shiraz and the almost unknown Peloursin variety. It was developed by a Dr Durif (such modesty those Frenchies) a little over 100 years ago. Intended for the warm, dry climes of Southern France, it is no surprise that the variety has flourished in Rutherglen.
Rich flavours of berries and licorice with dense tannins and classy French and American oak.
Young Durif is a wine of such concentration that it almost seems like a meal in itself! It needs to be partnered with rich dishes such as braised beef or steak and kidney pie. With time it will handle the most special of occasions and dishes, such as a roast rib of beef.
Beautifully packaged in a lay down gift box, this magnum truely is an impressive gift.
