MINO & CO A GROWERS TOUCH DURIF
Mino & Co was established in 1997 and has been producing wines of various styles, suited to the regions growing conditions but not limited to, for almost two decades. The winery is located in a small village called Hanwood, just outside Griffith in New South Wales with the area falling into the 'Riverina' region of NSW.
The area is well known for producing heavier style red wines such as Durif, Shiraz and Cabernet. Predominant white varietals found in the area range from Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon and Pinot Grigio. The Riverina is further credited for its world-class Botrytis Semillon, a grape left on the vine to ripen and inherit the Botrytis fungus.The wine is then produced into a sweet, concentrated dessert wine. In more recent times growers, and more specifically The Winery, have begun planting various Italian Varietals due to demand in the Australian wine market and the areas suitable growing conditions.
The Guglielmino family are passionate about displaying their Italian heritage in their selection of wine styles and believe there is a balance between adopting innovative techniques amongst the traditional methods of winemaking which have been passed down through the generations.
A Growers Touch Durif is bright crimson red with violet hues with a primary fruit aroma Mulberry, dark cherry & blackberry. The palate is a complex mix of black, blue and mulberry fruits, complemented by hints of coconut, vanilla & smooth fine-grain tannins. This is a rich and powerful wine.
