John Duval, Entity
Sourced from old Shiraz vineyards in the Krondorf, Tanunda, Ebenezer, Moppa, and Eden Valley regions comprising 94% Barossa Valley, 6% Eden Valley fruit.
The parcels of fruit were fermented separately in small stainless steel fermenters some with submerged caps, and twice daily pump overs. Due to low yields and dry conditions, we were careful to avoid over extraction, Post ferment, the component wines were matured in oak for 15 months, with 25% in new fine grain French oak hogsheads (300L) and the balance in older French hogsheads and puncheons. We intend for the wine to be
approachable in its youth, but with ample structure and fruit depth to allow cellaring, under good conditions, for at least 15 years.
NOSE: Attractive notes of dark berries and plum supported by hints of licorice and a floral lift.
PALATE: Dark and brooding, tightly wound layers of rich black and blue fruits with hints of dark chocolate and spice, finishing long with savoury tannins.
