Brand Info After starting up Pertaringa in McLaren Vale and K1 in the Adelaide Hills, Geoff established Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy in 2004. Always a passionate and innovative viticulturist, Geoff's Hand Crafted brand offers one of the broadest and most exciting ranges of alternative and emerging varieties in Australia.

Story Durif originates from southern France and was created in 1880 by Dr Durif from a cross between the varieties Syrah and Peloursin. 

Vintage Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.

Nose The nose is big and rich with plenty of ripe red fruit and a hint of dried herbs.

Palate The palate offers a big, bright and rich mouthful of lip-smacking flavour with beautiful structure and depth.

Food Pairings Try with a roasted rib eye on the bone served with balsamic glazed root vegetables.
