Shiraz Durif Rutherglen Victoria
The Campbells of Rutherglen are one of the nation's great winemaking dynasties, internationally recognized for their profound expressions of profoundly Australian Shiraz. They remain custodians to some of the world's last remaining plantings of pre-phyloxera Durif. Two of Rutherglen's defining varietal grapes have been assembled into a finely integrated, complex and engaging wine. The Shiraz component contributes full flavours with spicy berry fruit, Durif adds violet and black cherry characters, solid structure with length and a firm tannin finish.

Durif was first planted at Rutherglen in 1908 after being recommended by Francois de Castella, the Victorian Government's viticultural expert, who brought Durif back to Australia following a study tour of France. No other wine grape in Australia has created such a strong association with a single region as Durif with Rutherglen. The region's warm and dependable climate is in many ways similar to the Rhone, it comes as no surprise that Shiraz and Durif flourish here. Fruit is normally harvested in March and fermented on skins for a week. Following vinification and assembly of components, the wine is matured six months in a selection of French and American oak casks.
Deep crimson red. Fragrant and complex, Shiraz shows lifted plum fruit and cinnamon spice, Durif adds black cherry and earth characters. Shiraz predominates, providing lifted raspberry fruit on the palate, the lesser proportion of Durif makes its presence known with choc-berry flavours and aniseed over fine grained, lingering tannins. Well balanced and ready to enjoy upon release, the ideal wine to share with good friends around a grill of juicy meats.
