2006 Warrabilla Reserve Durif Methuselah (6000ml)

Rutherglen, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
$499.00 Bottle
  • ABV 16%
  • Closure: Cork

Only one thing's bigger than Warrabilla Durif and that's a 6 litre Warrabilla Durif. A terrific addition to the cellar with many years ahead of it. One Methuselah only available.

Tasting note: A behemoth. At a generous 16% alcohol, this wine delivers the lot and would seem impossible to topple (that's until one tastes the 2006 Limited Release Parola’s Durif). Andrew Sutherland-Smith has developed a strong reputation for these Rutherglen reds, the Durifs being the 'piece de resistance'. Totally opaque black purple colour with paint like cling to the glass walls. This paint like structural quality is common to all Warrabilla reds. Top note of morello cherries, vanilla, plum and liquorice allsorts. The detractors of these big wines will argue that at 16% alcohol you can get that burning sensation that a whiskey or brandy drinker experiences. This is far from the case! These wines in spite of their obesity, dance on the palate like an agile prima ballerina. Flavours of spice, black cherry, chocolate and liquorice. Very strong spicy back palate. Fine grained, perfectly balanced tannins. Very long aftertaste of vanilla, plum, morello cherries and confectionary. Alc/Vol: 16%
