The 2021 Buller Wines Rutherglen Calliope Durif has an impenetrable inky black colour, with an equally deep dark purple black hue. Potent ripe black cherry, black plum and liquorice aromas have an earthy leather overlay. There are also some emerging varnish like notes. Powerful luscious black and Morello cherry fruits run into a prominent dose of vanillin oak. Finishes with a dash of spice. Ripe chewy tannins provide firmness. Long plush aftertaste with lingering vanillin oak. Matured in American oak hogsheads for 18 months.

Winery & Vintage Info

The latest release Calliope Durif shows consistency in style and quality. Durif fruit has been grown in the Rutherglen area for nearly 100 years. It makes wines of intense colour and great flavour with a strong tannin structure, just like the Calliope Durif. We have been fortunate to have had a run of excellent vintages.

CALLIOPE is the name of the Bullers original vineyard at Rutherglen. Reginald Buller named the property after the warship of that name, one of the few survivors of the Great Hurricane at Samoa in 1889. A.B.(Banjo) Paterson’s stirring ‘Ballad of the Calliope’ records the event. Our Calliope label is reserved for outstanding vintages.

Buller Wines Calliope Durif may be drank on release but will repay cellaring for 8 to 10 years. Winery Notes
