2017 Hand Crafted Durif 2017 - Adelaide Hills

2017 Durif

Adelaide Hills

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.

Oak Maturation: 21 months in seasoned French oak.

Cellaring: Drink now or to 2025
