For The Cellar

Pinelli Estate Reserve Durif, Swan Valley 2012 $28

A gold medallist at the 2013 Swan Valley Wine Show, this excellent durif would compete well with Rutherglen’s finest. Deep, dark, youthful colour; bright black-cherry to raspberry aromas with a lick of spice and ideal ripeness. Full bodied, firmly structured palate. While robust and tannic, it has a core of sweet fruit. Best 2015 to 2025. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: barbecued steak
