About

If there's one next producer in Rutherglen who is striving for a more contemporary version of Durif to capture a new generation of wine lovers, it's Rowly Milhinch. Rowly oversees the management of their charming family owned vineyard and makes the wines on site beside the family home. He's striving for a more sexy, elegant version of the notoriously blockbuster variety. Doing things his own way, vigorously refining his own style. It's a great thing for Rutherglen. His 2014 is in a great place, it's in the slot for drinking now or built for a decade in the cellar. With 93 points from Campbell Mattinson and a Gold Medal at the North East Wine Show, Rowly is on track to be one of the future leaders of the region.

What it Tastes Like

"It’s dense and tannic but it also feels fresh and modern. This has been beautifully put together. Tar, saturated plum, chicory and cedar flavours make for hearty drinking, though the wine’s soft texture and overall freshness keep it from ever feeling weighed down. Now – with a decant – or much later, it will work equally well." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
