Kalleske ‘CCCLXV’ Durif 2019


Durif is such a show-stopper at tastings. You can’t put your finger on it, but it tastes damn good. Every. Single. Time. In the States it’s known as Petite Sirah, the word “Petite” indicating the size of the berries that make this grape so distinct. But how did it end up in Australia? Durif was first planted in Australia in the Rutherglen region by pioneering Victorian viticulturalist Francois de Castella in 1908. It suits warmer and drier climates, so is a natural fit for a number of regions, including Kalleske’s Barossa Valley.
