Durif is an oddball syrah cross dating back to France in the late 1800s and named after its creator. Durif has long enjoyed the warm climate of Rutherglen, where it produces a distinctively earthy, blackberry flavoured red. Deeply concentrated, but in no way heavy, The Barkly's ample tannins flavour a rich osso buco.
Bright crimson with violet hues. Rich dark plum and cherry fruit with lifted notes of black pepper, cloves and seamless spicy oak.
Powerful dark cherry and mullberry fruit form the base of the palate with oak adding texture and weight. Cloves, bramble and ironstone add complexity and compliment the very finely grained tannins.
