Golden Grove Durif 2013You could pass this off as a savoury Grenache. Damn its tasty. Durif is often seen is a big and gutsy wine, but that’s not the case here.Dangerously approachable, it’s a far cry from the 15% plus alcohol blockbusters coming from Rutherglen.There’s plenty going on. Tar, lead pencil, mulberry and raspberry fruits, black pepper, black garden soil, and dried savoury herbs. A little perky acid rides the fruit to give good balance.A medium term cellaring option but is drinking well now.

Very good to excellent.
