“Rutherglen’s famous and unique grape variety named for Norman Killeen, who had the fortitude to steer S&K through decades of development.”
SIZE: 750ML | ALC/VOL: 13.86% | VEGAN FRIENDLY: YES
Grape - Estate grown Durif.
Look - Deep and clear ruby to purple.
Aroma - Light wood spices, red berries and violets.
Taste - Blackberry, raspberries with chocolate. Soft tannin throughout the whole palate that balances perfectly with the fruit weight.
Occasion - The flavours and tannins in this wine would enhance many meat dishes but especially the spice of pink roast lamb.
Cellaring - In days past, Durif was often cellared for a long time. This wine does not need too much time, approximately 2-5 years. Even better is to decant it in a wide base decanter or jug to let the flavours open up and gain complexity and softness.
Winemaking - Durif is Rutherglen’s own, first planted here in 1906 it has been made in may styles. This is a modern take on the variety with softer tannins and fresh fruit flavours that is more approachable as a younger wine. 2019 was a very hot year and therefore yields were low, but the resultant flavours are intense and satisfying.
Note - This wine was previously known as 'Reserve Durif'
