Caravan Durif 2014

13.99

Description

Super-generous personality with a lovely dark-ruby colour and rich, warm aromas of blackberry, plum pudding and soy, with secondary notes of chocolate and menthol. Full on the palate, with ripe tannins and a long, jammy finish. The label here is a caravan parked up in front of a palatial Château, a playful wink at the wine establishment from itinerant winemaker Johnny Q.

Very tasty with sweet and sour pork or other rich, sweetish Chinese takeaway-style food.

Producer: Quarisa Wines

Established in 2005 and based in the McPherson Ranges in rural New South Wales, the small family business of Quarisa leases winery space and sources fruit from various established regions throughout Australia to craft full-flavoured wines of excellent value. For John and Josephine Quarisa, Australians of Italian heritage, their mottos ‘Passion is everything’ and ‘Never take life too seriously’ perfectly represent the heartfelt commitment they have towards their venture and life in general. Their passion extends beyond the boundaries of the wine industry  into their home, their family, and their hobbies and through the simplest things associated with everyday life. Laughter and fun are intrinsically mixed with hard work and good times. This life long, energetic partnership started at school when John and Josephine became high-school sweethearts and over the years they have grown and developed and are still passionately working together, laughing and loving every step of the way.

As a winemaker for over 30 years,during which time he has worked for some of the country’s largest and most well-known wineries including McWilliams, Casella and Nugan Estate, John has been awarded some of Australia’s greatest accolades including both the Jimmy Watson and Stodart Trophies. International and Australian Wine Show Judge, John’s experience and passion drove him to develop a range of wines that reflected the attributes he loved in great wines; down to earth, full of character and approachable are words which describe both the winemaking style and the winemaker himself.

In establishing their range of wines the Quarisas have drawn on their greatest passions in life; their children, love of art and Josephine’s artistic talents, their family, heritage and John himself, the fun - loving winemaker. The Johnny Q and Treasures range have been designed with an international audience in mind and the labels draw inspiration from John and his family.  Johnny Q features John actually dressed up for the action shots on the label, while Treasures captures an innocent yet unforgettable moment in time of John and Josephine’s children on a family holiday at the beach.
