With Black Duck Durif, Sam Trimboli set out to make a barrel aged big red to knock the spots off every other Durif in our range. This is the mighty Duck’s fifth vintage – and it’s as bold, rich and spicy as ever. Real ‘wow in a glass’ stuff!
"I am in love – delicious on the palate and fruity on the nose, perfect with or without food"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
Matured in American oak, the Black Duck Durif is full bodied and smooth with layers of spicy, fruity flavour. Many customers will know winemaker Sam Trimboli from his days at Warburn Estate, where he collected hundreds of awards for his legendary skills. During that time he developed an obsession for the somewhat obscure Durif, a “stunning little powerhouse grape that develops astounding complexity”, as he describes it. The Durif grapes for this wine come from a small vineyard that Sam helped establish in the 1980s. It’s now at peak maturity. In the 2018, he decided to add a small portion of punchy spice Petit Verdot for extra complexity and dark berry intensity. Perfect with char-grilled steak or strong cheeses, or as a warming glass solo.
