All Saints Durif 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

With good colour, soft, ripe fruit flavours and a nice grippy finish, this is an elegant Rutherglen Durif. Durif is a great red wine for ageing. The 2011 has plenty of tannin and enough acidity to keep the wine balanced and improving for 5 to 8 years. However it will throw some sediment so is best decanted before serving. The rich flavours and firm tannins of Durif are very well suited to hearty dishes. Try pairing it with rich beef or lamb stews or maybe dig out a recipe for Steak and Kidney pie.

Established by two enterprising Scots, George Sutherland Smith and John Banks. The castle was built in the 1880's and based on the design of The Castle of May, complete with turrets and tower. The castle is classified by the ‘Historic Buildings Council’, along with two other Estate buildings, the former bottling hall & cellar and the Chinese Dormitory. The former bottling hall and cellar now houses The Indigo Cheese Co. (est. December 2005), and the Chinese Dormitory, built around 100 years ago, is the last remaining example of its type. The Great Hall, our main wine storage area, is lined with huge 100-year-old oak casks, filled with rare Tokays and Muscats. Some of these fortified wines are up to 80 years old and will form the base of future blends for years to come. The wines are amongst Australia's and the world’s greatest, internationally extolled for their richness and "lusciousness". All Saints Estate won the first gold medal for Australian wine in 1873 at the London International Exhibition and continues to win trophies and receive rave reviews today. Read less
