Dark durif

Cofield Durif 2014, Rutherglen, AUD $26

Durif is a specialty grape of Rutherglen. The colour is a dark inky purple/red; the aroma is bold and fruit-driven, as is the flavour. Dark plums, creosote, graphite, and the palate is tremendously rich, concentrated and fruit-sweet. It has the makings of a top wine in time. (Screwcap)
