2021 Provincial Black Quartz Vein Durif

Our home vineyard sits upon a complex patch of soil. Light sands rise from the Murray River and meandering Sunday Creek to the west, while darker red and brown loams stretch east toward Rutherglen. They meet beneath us, separated only by a thin vein of quartz, that imparts unique character on the resulting wines.

From a mature planting, this wine represents our finest parcel of estate grown Durif. Hand-crafted in tiny volumes, we employ traditional methods to produce a wine of immense depth and complexity.

We aim for a contemporary Durif which is not overblown with intensity, tannin or alcohol level. It is a deliberately restrained style which has spent 18 months on predominately Hungarian Oak to give a unique and modern Durif style.


Single vineyard Durif from our Quartz Vein vineyard in Rutherglen. Bright and aromatic, raspberry, cherry and amaro herbs. The palate is soft and vibrant with fine tannin providing some subtle richness to this fresh and contemporary style of Durif.

A selection from our Quartz Vein vineyard was vinified separately. Hand plunged in open vats and then pressed to a selection of new and old barrels. The best 5 barrels were selected and blended into a small stainless steel tank. Vibrancy, drinkability and plushness were given preference over old-school Durif characteristics.
