Calabria Three Bridges Riverina 2019 Durif
92/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, May 2021
"Great value. Such a hearty red. Bold, tannic, dark and satisfying. Licorice and vanilla, blackberry and mint, boysenberry. Heaps of chewy tannin. Slips and liquid toast. It’s old school but it does it well. And given the volume here, the price is very good."
“$25 is such a sensible price for a bottle of wine. Enough to get something decent yet not break the bank nor look cheap. 9.4/10.“ Daily Examiner - Simon Hughes - Max Crus reviews
“…Durif is a red wine originally sourced from France. The berries produced are small and concentrated and performs best in warm, sunny areas and that is why Calabria Wines has so much success with it. The wine produced is full flavoured with intense colour & high tannins & will age well." Winery
Over the last few years this wine from the Riverina region of Australia, has picked up an almost cult following. It is big, bold, powerful, and intensely concentrated, with brooding aromas of black fruits and dark chocolate. The palate is on the rich and weighty side, but not over-the-top, with the tannins and dusty oak balancing the fruit and alcohol nicely. This wine is a great example.
