John Duval Entity shiraz

  • Colour: Deep purple red
  • Nose: Dark fruit expression of blackberry and plum, gives way to some lifted floral notes and savoury, spicy French oak.
  • Palate: Full bodied and generous with excellent concentration of blackberry fruit. Textured layers of fruit, balanced acitity and fine, long tannins will enable good cellaring potential.

Lifted notes of dark berries, plum and boysenberry, supported by hints of anise and clove. Dark and brooding, with excellent concentration of layered rich dark fruits with hints of dark chocolate and earth finishing long with youthful tannins.

2019 was a vintage where quality has triumphed over quantity, with spring frosts and dry conditions combining for greatly
reduced yields across the Barossa. Volumes were well down on average, some vineyards more than 50% down, particularly
in Eden Valley. However, the fruit we did (very gratefully) receive showed exceptional depth of colour, vibrant yet
concentrated fruit with plenty of structure on the palate. 2019 will be remembered as a year for texture, structure and
richness. The shiraz vintage started on 25 February and finished in Eden Valley by 10 March.
