5OS Project 2016 Is The New Black Durif (McLaren Vale)

This wine, true to its variety, is inky in hue and equally dense in style. The nose is brooding and closed at first. Time in glass reveals aromas of ripe dark fruit, dried herbs, mocha, vanilla and dusting polish. On the palate, powerful, drying tannins act as a vice on the tongue. If you can get past the whack of tannins you'll find plush fruit and and oak, too. This is a massive wine that needs plenty to time to settle. Drink 2020–2033. Christina Pickard
