Durif, also known as Petit Sirah, is a black skinned grape, known for its high tannins, moderate acidity, and deep dark fruit aromas. A cross between Syrah and the mysterious Peloursin, its grown in small quantities around the world, with most plantings centring around the US and Australia. The 2018 Reserve Durif from Sans & Pareil Estate has notes of blueberries, plum, dark chocolate, and smoky black pepper and is best decanted for 30 minutes before enjoying. Try it with roast pork, smoky black beans, or aged gouda.
Durif, or Petit Sirah, is dense in colour and flavour, and this Aussie red is no exception. Fragrant aromas of sweet berry fruits and blueberries are accompanied by vanillin oak and a touch of pepper and spice. Full-bodied and rich with grippy tannins to add bite.
The name 'Sans Pareil' means no equivalent and the team at this Aussie winery strive to produce wines that are unrivalled by breaking tradition and producing wines to "cultivate your passion."
18/20, Wine Central Tasting Panel
Lynnette Hudson, Experiencing Winemaker "Intense aromas of strawberries, candyfloss, dark fruits. The berry compote continues on the palate with firm, mouth coating tannins, perfect for those who love big, full bodied wines. A satisfying finish with vanilla and dark chocolate notes and crunchy acid."
93 Points, Wine Orbit "Richly fruited and instantly appealing, the wine shows black/blueberry, dark plum, vanillin oak, cocoa and subtle game characters. The palate displays terrific fruit intensity and weight, wonderfully complemented by velvety texture and silky tannins. Opulent and flavoursome. At its best: now to 2025. Feb 2020."
