I have no idea why durif should not be viewed as friendly and as inviting as shiraz. In the hands of a sympathetic maker, those pesky tannins purr. No angles. Case in point here with a Rutherglen durif big in colour and personality with lifted aromatics of cherry, stewed plums, spice, musk. Succulent palate with confident display of toasty oak and well-managed tannins. So much for being a rustic red, far from it. Meet the elegant durif.

It’s certainly firm, as you’d hope and expect of the variety, but it’s buoyant with bright, succulent, berried fruit too. This is quite delicious. Dark, bold, sprightly and chewy at once.
