Although only a few token plantings remain in France today, Durif is both successful and popular in Australia where it makes characterful, pitch-black wines. Shiraz fans are recognising the charm of these rich, full- bodied wines from Durif and are converting. Rutherglen makes the finest examples of this beautiful variety and are held in high esteem domestically and in international markets.
Deep ruby in colour with rich, ripe flavours it can be cellared for a further decade or more. If cellared, it should be decanted before serving.
The Rutherglen region is the epicentre for Australian Fortified Muscadelle and the greatest and most rare examples are hidden within the walls of the oldest wineries in the region.
Muscadelle has considerable aging in warm cellars of a period of seven to 100 years before they are released, leading to a unique wine that cannot be emulated.
The Muscat makers in Rutherglen are master blenders of their fortified material ranging from the very young to over 100 year old examples.

Thousand Pound Wine Bar & Store is ahead of the trend.
Victoria’s wine canteens are a rapidly growing regional obsession amongst city barflies. Grape aficionados haven't retreated into their cellars to sulk, they are venturing out of town to find the best boutique sip three hours north of Melbourne.
Reinventing the grape genre, Thousand Pound tosses out stuffy pretences, blurring the boundaries between city and country into an under served hood, creating funky, affordable vin lists paired with Simon Arkless’s chef-driven fare. Sip and swirl your way through the best wines the region has to offer or venture globally from your seat at the bar.
Thousand Pound Wine Bar & Store was awarded the ‘Best Small Bar’ in Victoria and Tasmania in the 2017 Savour Australia’s Restaurant and Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for excellence.
We look forward to welcoming you soon. Bookings are recommended.
