Just landed – We only get a couple of shipments of this wine a year and they usually sell out quite quickly.


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 definitely on the rich and weighty side, but not over-the-top, with the tannins and dusty oak balancing the fruit and alcohol nicely.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"An aromatic blood plum and blackberry nose with an array of violets, mocha and vanillin. An intense, full bodied palate of plums, mulberries and violets, complemented by American oak sweetness, and an elegant tannin structure of support and power.

Fermented in open top concrete 10 tonne fermenters, thoroughly plunged twice each day throughout a slow fermentation lasting 7 – 8 days. Pressed to stainless storage, where the wine completes primary and malo-lactic fermentation. Racked and transferred to a blend of 90% American oak and 10% French oak Hogsheads & Barriques, to mature for 12 months.

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."

92/100 Toni Paterson MW, The Real Review, June 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"If you love durif you will find this a most excellent and satisfying example. Yes, it is a big wine, but what sets it apart from the pack is its brightness. It is laden with boysenberry and mulberry flavours, with oak adding accents of vanilla and spice. It is full in body, but not syrupy or viscous in any way. The tannins have been managed beautifully."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Powerful and gloriously fruited, the bouquet shows blackberry jam, blueberry, vanilla, cedar and chocolate tart characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is plush and opulent. The wine is dense and velvety, and offers terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2024."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

  • 5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
