Inky-dark. Opaque through the glass but tilt it far enough over and strikingly vibrant purple rim can be glimpsed. Nose: We think Durif should be pretty, not grubby or grunty and is particularly important in the aromatics.


This is Durif as we like it, gorgeous wafts of blueberries and violets with some lovely chocolatey notes.


Palate: This wine is all about classic Durif richness and power without the decade-long wait for drinking perfection. Full-bodied and packed with intense berry flavours, spice and dark chocolate characters.


It wouldn't be Durif without tannins, but careful winemaking has ensures that these are well integrated, soft and supple, whilst still letting you know what is in the glass!
