WINEMAKING

Rich flavours of berries and licorice with dense tannins and classy French and American oak.

VITICULTURAL

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.

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.

The Range Comprising varietal wines of distinction, our Family Cellar range was created to be something special from the outset. The marriage of magnificent fruit from sustainable, old vineyards and traditional, hand-crafted winemaking techniques ensure beautifully balanced, elegant table wines that display a true sense of place.
Cellaring Potential Durif has plenty of tannin and enough acidity to keep the wine balanced and improving for up to a decade or more. Within a few years it will throw some sediment, so is best decanted before serving.
Food Matching Durif is a regal partner for richly flavoured dishes such as braised beef or Beef bourguignon where the tannins will meld nicely with the sticky character of the meat. With age it will complement the most special of occasions and dishes, such as a perfectly cooked rib eye fillet.
Variety Durif is such a local hero that it is sometimes called Rutherglen Durif. The variety is a cross of Peloursin and Shiraz and it prospers almost exclusively in North East Victoria. Our long, warm Autumn days give the grapes plenty of time to develop their intense colour and rich flavours.
The Wine It is deep inky-black colour, rich aromas and flavours of berries and licorice with dense tannins and classy French and American oak. It is a wine of considerable intensity and power. Built to last a generation, this is Rutherglen Durif as the classic “iron fist in a velvet glove”.
