John Duval Wines Entity Shiraz 2016

60/40 blend of Barossa and Eden Valley shiraz. 100% barrel matured for 15 months; 33% new 300 litre French oak, the balance going into 2, 3 and 4 year old oak (also hogsheads).

Svelte, sturdy, plump, you name it. There’s ample tannin here but the fruit sweeps through it. This is a ripping Barossa/Eden shiraz. As generous as it is refined; as neat as it is ribald. Blackberry, roasted plums, cloves, mint, dark chocolate and a rush of boysenberry. Both grunty and succulent. It’s a beauty.
