Brown Brothers Durif 2006
The fruit for this wine comes from our own Heathcote vineyard which sits on the rolling eastern slopes of the Mount Camel range in central Victoria. The wine is a deep saturated black red colour with vibrant purple hue. Aromas of dark blood plums, red licorice and tobacco leap out of the glass. The use of predominantly older oak has given the palate an elegance and refinement that is not usually found in young Durif, the dark berry fruit flavours follow through to the palate and the oak is seamlessly integrated into the wine. Cellared correctly this wine will age for 5 – 7 years from vintage.
