Rutherglen in Victoria, Australia is blessed with long and gently warm Summer/Autumn. There is very rarely a threat of rain until April and May and this ensures that that late ripening varieties such as Durif tend to grow beautifully well in our region and produce wines with great aromatics and elegance.
Opaque ruby red. Full black cherries on the nose with a lifted floral edge. The integrated oak ads depth, spice and a hint of char. Intense dark cherry and black plum fruit fill the mouth and slowly give way to a beautiful texture and aromas of ironstone and coffee grounds. The wine finishes with lingering dark fruit, char and very fine tannin.
