The Barkly is only released when vintage conditions are exceptional for Durif. Selected parcels of premium fruit were fermented on skins in closed fermenters for six days, and then aged in a combination of American and French barriques for 18 months.
Bright crimson with violet hues. Rich dark plum and cherry fruit with lifted notes of black pepper, cloves and seamless spicy oak. Powerful dark cherry and mullberry fruit form the base of the palate with oak adding texture and weight. Cloves, bramble and ironstone add complexity and compliment the very finely grained tannins.
