2015 Eligo Shiraz, John Duval, 6x750ml
Duval's flagship wine is the 2015 Eligo Shiraz, a blend of Barossa Valley and Eden Valley fruit that spent 20 months in 60% new French oak hogsheads. It's toasty and cedary, but those elements are balanced by the wine's deep, persistent dark fruit notes of blueberry, blackberry and boysenberry. Full-bodied and dense without excess weight and framed by fine-grained tannins, it's approachable now, but it should be even better in a decade. 2018-2035
Catching up with John Duval is a lesson in modern Australian winemaking. He made Grange for Penfolds, working with Max Schubert and Don Ditter before serving as chief winemaker from 1987–2002, so he's got historic bona fides.
