Durif is a red wine produced using black-skinned grapes that resulted from a cross between the popular Shiraz and lesser-known Peloursin varieties. Suspected to be created accidentally, the grape variety was discovered by Dr François Durif (a French botanist from the famous Rhone wine region). Ironically, despite of having originated in France, it’s one of the least grown varieties in the country. The grape variety is said to flourish in dry climate regions. Thus, countries like Australia, California and Israel that are characterised by a dry climate are considered to be the best Durif wine producers. Durif synonymously known as Petite Sirah as well in some parts of the world, especially North and South America. Petite (meaning small) evidently refers to the small sized and intensely coloured Petite Sirah berries. Durif red wine is also gaining popularity in Australian markets, recognised for its pitch-black colour and characterful palate. The country has also become known for producing amazing Durif sparkling red wines.
Durif wine is considered excellent for ageing due to its high tannin content and acidity. Generally, it showcases black fruit flavours like blackberry that are complemented by inky violet notes along with smoky liquorice and cedar nuances. Durif wines are emerging to be a great substitute for Shiraz (Syrah) owing to the incredibly dark colour and powerful characteristics.
