Alex Russell Wines Alejandro Durif 2015

Durif, known as petite sirah in North America and South America, produces full bodied, deeply coloured and prodigiously powerful wines.  This is a good example of durif from Alex Russell Wines from the Riverland, a climate to which this variety is suited.  Its aromatics are warm and cuddly, with leather, licorice and raisin cake notes.  The palate is balanced and full bodied.
