Brown Brothers LR Durif 2016
Other Reds »
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 a vibrant purple hue. Aromas of dark blood plums, liquorice and tobacco leap out of the glass, while the use of predominantly older oak has given the palate an elegance and refinement that is not usually found in young Durif. Dark berry fruit flavours are also a strong influence on the palate, offering an impressive intensity and a full bodied finish. Cellared correctly this wine will age for 7-9 years from vintage.
