919 Reserve Durif 750mL
Durif is not for the faint-hearted, characteristically having dense colour with purple and black tints, intense aromas of blackberry, mulberry, violets and blackberry. The palate is bold, firm and textural with flavours of berries, black pepper, cocoa and coffee, well integrated oak and a long finish.
Durif comes from our original vineyard in Glossop, where low yielding vines produce intense wines of great harmony and balance.
Pair our Durif to hearty beef with black pepper or quandong sauces, dark chocolate, and mulberry pavlova.
It has the potential to cellar up to 15 years, but who can wait that long? The fresh berry and floral characteristics predominate in wines aged up to about eight years. Older wines exhibit more coffee and chocolate notes, and may need decanting before serving. Consume within 48 hours of opening for maximum freshness and flavour.
