From a ripper vintage in Rutherglen comes this voluptuously-styled red that is full of dark fruits, mocha and pepper spice on the nose, whilst the palate is lush and decadent, moderate in tannin and easy to drink. It's already sporting some silver bling from the wine shows, and is a great value red for sipping around the BBQ.
Rutherglen Estates Red has been made for wine lovers who enjoy all the qualities that have made Australian red wines so popular. Blended from the two red grape varieties for which Rutherglen is most famous, Shiraz and Durif, Red – in true Rutherglen style – displays big bold flavours and a wonderful depth of colour.
Our Red blend allows the full expression of the wonderful fruit, pepper and spice of Shiraz, with the background of rich Durif, which contributes the blackberry fruit, licorice, aniseed and chocolate characters, as well as firming the tannins for a complete red wine. Our hugely celebrated and successful Red wine offers enormous value for money. Great colour, dense fruit characters of plum and cherry, with hints of spice and pepper, our Red is a mouthful of rich flavour and juicy tannins.
