Wine of the Week AU
Riverina Winemakers Association Centenary of Griffith Durif 2015, Riverina, AUD $20
Seven Riverina wineries contributed a barrel to make this durif to mark the centenary of Griffith. It’s amazing value. Very deep purple/red colour, discreet aromas of berry and spices leading into a concentrated palate of intense flavour and a sheen of savoury tannins which cleanse and balance the finish. (Screwcap)
