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 The 2016 vintage was in general very mild with low rainfall. The lack of rain looked like it would result in a quick harvest, but a big downpour in early February made sure the vintage was more evenly spread out. The yields were up on the couple of previous years and the quality looks great.

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.
