Expert Reviews

Campbells’ The Barkly is one of the pillars of Rutherglen durif.

It’s a sturdy red. It is durif after all. It’s raked with tannin – it builds as it breathes – but awash with black cherry and plum fruit characters, wrapped in leather. There are aspects of liquorice and raisin too. It’s not the most complex red, as a two year old, but it’s clearly been made to age; this needs and deserves a rest in a cool, dark, unlikely-to-be-disturbed place.

Rating 93 - Campbell Mattinson Wine Front

Winery Tasting Notes

Dense, dark inky red. Black fruits, dark and brooding with supporting oak.

PALATE:

Rich full bodied black plum fruit. A powerful wine with a presence - grippy dry finish with good fruit and a smart clean finish.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Campbells winery and vineyards are situated in the historic Rutherglen Wine Region of North East Victoria.

Brothers Malcolm and Colin are the fourth generation to carry on the Campbell tradition started by their great grandfather John Campbell in Rutherglen in 1870. Together with their wives Jenny and Prue, they have forged a strong reputation for Campbells as a benchmark Rutherglen wine producer.

The brothers are an ideal team with Malcolm as viticulturist and Colin as winemaker. They have 160 acres of vineyard all within the historic Rutherglen Wine Region and are a true estate grown and bottled operation.

This means we have the ability to nurture our wines from vine to bottle. As Colin says, “Our wines are like our children, we bring them into this world and take great pride and joy in holding their hands and watching them grow”.

Malcolm's approach in the vineyard is quite simple, “Quality even at the expense of quantity is our aim. We assist nature, we don't seek to dominate her.”

Colin believes his role as winemaker is to maximize and protect the natural fruit flavours. His skill is in making wines with structure and balance that can confidently be aged; a hallmark of Campbells Wines.

Today the fifth generation of Campbells is adding their enthusiasm and skills. How excited would their great great grandfather John Campbell be to see this dedication to the Campbell name!
