John Duval Entity Shiraz 2014
John Duval is one of the world’s best known winemakers coming from a family that boasts four generations of South Australian vignerons. He has been saluted many times on the world stage, notably International Winemaker of the Year 1989 and twice Red Winemaker of the Year in 1991 and 2000. Toward the end of 2002, John retired from Southcorp after a distinguished career of 28 years, including 16 years as Chief Winemaker for Penfolds. John embarked on the development of his own label in 2003 using old vine Barossa Valley fruit and has created two stunning wines that reflect the terroir of the Barossa and the hand crafted attention of John Duval.
The aim with Entity is to produce an elegant Shiraz true to the Barossa. The 2014 Entity again includes some Eden Valley Shiraz to help maintain the elegance and style of Entity. Shiraz 100%, sourced from old vineyards Marananga, Eden Valley, Ebenezer and Krondorf regions.
Traditional, low intervention winemaking techniques were employed with Entity, allowing the wine to be approachable in its youth, but with ample structure and fruit depth to allow great potential for improvement in the bottle under good cellaring conditions, for at least 10-12 years.
