As you’d expect from a wine dominated by Durif, this is a whopper of a red. It was carefully crafted in the darkest corner of the cellar. Why? Because it’s the special project of rising star winemaker David Joeky and he didn’t want anyone to take a look or taste it until he was absolutely ready. So every evening, after the rest of the crew had left, David would retire to the furthest corner of the cellar, where he’d stationed his special tanks of dark, spicy Durif and ripest, peppery Shiraz. We think he’s ‘blended a blinder’ as the locals say. It’s firm and full, yet abundant in gloriously ripe, liquorice- and spice-scented fruit with an underlying note of oak. Smooth enough to sip on its own, but even better with hearty red meat dishes.

"Fat, fruity, sweet vanilla and coffee-laced burly Aussie red. A very cosy winter warmer" Jane McQuitty
