A not-so-common variety in WA, its spiritual home in Australia would be Rutherglen. Often also called Petit Syrah, Durif can be a mouthful. We love the flavour and texture of this wine, with some careful winemaking – shorter extraction (time on skins) – we achieve a full-bodied wine with fantastic balance.
Drinking wonderfully young, although it will certainly develop with a careful 8-10 year laydown.
