About the wine

Deep, dark, brooding Durif Shiraz blend - this wine is not for the faint-hearted
  • We love to do things a little left field and this is a blend we’d been talking about for a while! We were finally able to get our hands on some really great fruit and thought it would be a perfect fit for our eclectic A&R range. 
  • Your faith in us and our ability is incredible, and it makes us want to work as hard as we can to bring them the best possible wines we can make.  We’d never be given the opportunity to make a style like this if we were working anywhere else – it’s something most other winemakers only dream of!
  • Durif is a big, bold powerhouse variety and the Shiraz brings balance and structure, which together creates a well-rounded, full bodied, in-your-face kind of red. It’s still a very, very young wine and we highly recommend you decant, decant, decant. We’re really excited about it and can’t wait for you to try it.

Serving advice
Serve at 16-18°C. Open/Decant 2-3 hours before serving. Decant. Decant. Decant. Then decant some more. This baby is still just that... a baby. It’s only just been born and it’s got a long life ahead of it.

Food match
Anything rich, warming and hearty. Think beef stews, slow cooked anything, chilli con carne… things along those lines are going to go down a treat with this wine. For something a little different, you might want to try it with some dark, bitter chocolate… it’s an interesting pairing.

Meet the winemaker - Adrian & Rebecca Santolin

  • 8 years ago the Santolins were at a crossroads, trying to cobble together a living making hand-crafted wines with 1 small tank, 1 barrel, and a few barrow-loads of fruit. A sensible couple would have quit and bought a house. But they had a dream. And they got Naked.
  • Our Boy Meets Girl duo chose to make their home in the famous Yarra Valley. It’s tricky there for small, independent winemakers as mega corporations buy up the area’s top notch grapes. Angel funding meant Adrian and Rebecca could pay growers upfront and get their hands on the best fruit possible to make their deliciously moreish wines.
  • Three kids, 8,000 followers and heaps of awards later, they’re still living that dream and hand-crafting some of the most delicious artisan wines down under. All thanks to you, and the power of Angel crowd-funding.
