Berton Vineyards Winemakers Reserve Durif 2018
For lovers of big, inky-black reds - a delicious wine with rich, ripe concentrated dark fruits combined with hints of spice and chocolate.
Intense aromas of violets, blackberry and subtle chocolate notes are showcased in this fabulous Durif. Inky, dark fruit characters of blackberry are complemented by a touch of anise and smoky liquorice filling the concentrated palate. Integrated spicy oak and tight tannins add complexity and depth that persist through to a long flavoursome finish. If you like BIG, BLACK reds, this is for you!
Durif is a cross between Syrah and little known variety called Peloursin and is sometimes known as Petite Sirah. This parcel of Durif has been chosen from a single vineyard, the ‘Foleys Corner Vineyard’, which overlooks Griffith in the Riverina, New South Wales.
