Region: Barossa Valley, Australia

Grape: Durif

CCCLXV Durif 365 is midnight black in colour with an intense purple rim. The aroma is captivating, striking and fascinating. Intriguing and dynamic, there is fruit cake, fireplace, stewed plum, blackberry jam, dried herbs, dark chocolate and spice. The palate is immense. Full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling. Ripe black fruits dominate leading to plum pudding and then strong grippy tannins. There is an oak-esque character as well, derived from a year on skins, as this wine has not seen an oak barrel. A muscular structure handsomely frames the rich palate. The vast generosity of this wine continues to the finish which endures close to perpetuity. By bottling after pressing with no barrel maturation, there is no oak intrusion, truly allowing for the Durif grape to shine in its absolute largesse.

CCCLXV Durif 365 is an audacious wine. Bold in every respect, it can be enjoyed now in its early splendour or equally cellared for a decade or two.

The roman numeral CCCLXV corresponds to Arabic number 365. CCCLXV = 365.

Recommended Food Pairing: rich meaty stews; game meat; roast beef with rich gravy or sauce; grilled or BBQ meats; spicy sausages; hard and strong cheese (eg aged vintage cheddar, Spanish manchego, Italian Piave).
