Ballerina Canopy 2017 Durif - Gapsted Wines

"This wine is quite measured for a durif, which is terrific to see. The fruit is bright yet soft and in the mulberry, dark cherry sphere. Yes, the tannins are plentiful, but they are in tune with the density of the wine. Oak introduces a scented vanilla aspect into the wine. I love the brightness and energy. One for the cellar." - Toni Paterson, The Real Review

90 points SILVER

VINEYARD REGION: Alpine Valleys

THE WINE: This wine displays a deep inky red colour. The nose shows intense spice, vanilla, raisins, fruitcake and blood plums. These complex aromas lead to a palate of intense spicy ripe plum characters with complex toasty oak. This wine is weighty and robust with harmonious tannins.

FOOD MATCHES: Try with beef cheeks and roasted parsnip.

PEAK DRINKING: Now-2036
