Winery & Vintage Info

The Rutherglen Estate was acquired by the iconic De Bortoli Wines in 2018 and is the world leader in production of fortified wines such as Muscat, Port and Topaque (formerly known as Tokay). One of the most progressive and diverse viticultural regions in Australia, Rutherlgen is also recognised for producing premium quality red wines and many European white varietals.

The 2021 vintage Rutherglen Estate Durif is grown on the De Bortoli Shelley’s vineyards on the eastern edge of the Rutherglen region. The site has an interesting gravel, clay and alluvial soil mix with different aspects which helps generate different flavour profiles.

2021 was a fantastic year to grow grapes in Rutherglen. After regular rainfall events and a mild summer the grapes have ripened to their ultimate potential. The whites in particular have outstanding flavour intensity. The reds had great colour, varietal flavours and structure which is enhanced to the natural acid retained due to the cooler season.
