919 Reserve Collection 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. This wine is intensely dark with cherry hues and the aroma of complex pepper, nutmeg and clove spices, ripe plum, berries and cocoa, with a touch of cigar and vanilla oak. The palate is very savoury with notes of freshly cracked pepper and roast beef, liquorice, coffee and cocoa, cranberry and rhubarb. Some fresh and balanced American oak contributes great length and structure, with a refreshing plum and berry fruit pop at the 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.
