Durif (Petit Sirah)
Durif is a lesser known red variety that thrives in a warm climate. This medium bodied wine has aromas of cherry, blood plum and brown spices and displays bold fruit flavours of ripe berry, with liquorice, vanilla spice and a hint of chocolate oak. Can you envision the open fire? On a cold winter’s night, we are thinking hearty stew or Italian Veal Ragu Pappardelle. A quick hint; to allow the wine to deliver its fragrant aromas and bold flavour serve slightly cool – in winter room temperature is perfect.
