John Duval Entity Shiraz

When John Duval, Penfolds' former highly regarded winemaker, branched out on his own, he was keen to make wine with more vitality, and therefore he sourced a lot of fruit from Eden Valley.

This 2010 John Duval Entity Shiraz has a sweet plum and mulberry core. This wine is more about depth and intensity. The firm tannins match the fruit, but elegance suffers as a result. This is a big, juicy wine with significant alcoholic content and feel. This wine can still be regarded as balanced (and attractive as such), but only just. One for lovers of Barossa Shiraz.

Score: 92/+
