2005 Vintage Port
Our influences have been the nutty styles of Portugal and the deep black ethereal wines of Rutherglen. By using Durif to make a drier style, we combine the best of both. The great tannins and huge colour are balanced by the vibrant morello cherry fruit that Durif is legendary for. These classic wines benefit from cellaring for many years.     19% Alc.
