A medium-bodied style of wine that shows ripe, juicy dark berries on the nose, with touches of earthy spices and pot pourri. The palate is quite rich despite its medium-bodied nature, with sweet blackberry flavours, licks of soft spices and toasty savouriness, fine-grained tannins, and a plush spicy finish. Excellent with some lamb cutlets.
Durif is Australian for Petite Sirah, Interestingly Baileys of Glenrowan produce two wines from the same vines, on the same plot. The Petite Sirah is simply picked one week earlier than the Durif.
