About

Durif is not a variety often associated with charming, sophisticated wines made in the Rosé style. Scion winemaker Rowly Milhinch is certainly giving it a red hot crack. This is a classy, dry example of Rosé which is absolutely glorious to drink. Some of the power and structure inherent in the Durif grape comes through in this early picked version but there's more than enough juicy fruit to ensure that drinking pleasure is dialled up to the max. A stylish Rosé made with a clear vision and spot-on execution. Well deserving of the 93 points from Campbell Mattinson.

What it Tastes Like

"Scion – from Rutherglen, using durif – make an excellent fist of rose. It feels slightly more serious than the 2015 version. It’s dry and savoury and boasts a distinct firmness. A few sips and it has you singing out for another round of ‘plates’. Cut, polish, detail, satisfaction. Uncompromising in an entirely praiseworthy (and enjoyable) way. On song." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
