Calabria ‘Three Bridges’ Durif 2015

Other Red from Australia - NSW
Review Date : 05-Feb-2017
Full, near saturated, black-hued purple-red colour. The nose is very full and softly voluminous with sweetly ripe, aromatic fruit aromas of blackberries and plums with soft notes of boysenberries, forming a dense core, unfolding black ink, tar, dark herb and cedary oak elements. Full-bodied, the palate is sweetly rich with plush flavours of ripe blackberries, dark raspberries, plums and liquorice. Nuances of bitter chocolate, black ink and cedary oak add interest. The fruit sweetness is supported by fine-grained, powdery tannin extraction and structure that lends a balancing dryness, and the acidity is well integrated. The mouthfeel is rounded, with the firm core and line carrying to a sweet, lingering finish of boysenberries, plums and liquorice. This is a rich, lusciously ripe, full-bodied Durif with blackberry, raspberry, plum and liquorice flavours with a fine, firm core. Match with roasted game meat dishes over the next 6-8 years. Fruit from the Riverina, fermented to 14.5% alc., aged 12 months in new and seasoned American oak. 18.5/20 Feb 2017 RRP $21.95
