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 offers aromas of dark berry fruit and cherries with hints of grapefruit.

Palate The full-bodied palate displays cherries and raspberries, finishing with spicy notes of cloves.

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