Nugan Estate Durif Riverina 2018

Product description
Durif is a rich and robust red grape variety that revels in the warm and dry conditions of Manuka Grove at Hanwood, New South Wales. Upon reaching optimum ripeness, the parcel was harvested and destemmed without crushing, to retain whole berry during ferment. Fermentation was undertaken in rotary fermenters, which were rolled twice daily for 8 days ahead of pressing to new and seasoned American oak hogsheads for maturation.

Deep garnet in appearance with youthful crimson hue. Aromas of dark cherry and blood plum over milk chocolate oak. The palate displays rich and generous flavours of black cherry, plum pudding and dark chocolate melded with earth and vanillin notes. The final result is a delicious, full-bodied red wine with generous fruit intensity, balance and structure. Enjoy with seared Lamb rump, or caramelized veal shanks with polenta, or aged cheddar cheese.
