About The Wine
This is a more approachable version of Durif grown at the Eldorado Road vineyard by Paul and Laurie.
This is madeit is made with as minimal intervention as possible with natural fermentation, extended time on skins and basket pressing to both new and seasoned French oak.
To find a Durif with this amount of drinkability is a rare treat.
Power and darkness and complexity - Durif with finesse . What a drink!
About Eldorado Road
Eldorado Road is one of Northern Victoria's hidden wine gems.
Paul Dahlenburg (Bear) and Lauretta Schulz (Laurie) are the two passionate vignerons behind this label.
After taking control of an impossibly old Glenrowan vineyard planted to Shiraz that they have brought back to life, the two have planted small parcels of Durif and Nero d'Avola on their property, believing that their unique terroir between Beechworth and Wangaratta is perfectly suited to produce powerful yet elegant expressions of these varieties.
The critical acclaim for these wines is flooding in. It's only early days for Bear and Laurie in their own operation, but Eldorado Road is definitely a producer to watch.
