Description

74/26 blend of Barossa and Eden Valley shiraz. Best of the vintage. 54% new French oak.

Coffee grounds and black berries, peppermint and peppercorns, licorice and malted milk. It’s a substantial red wine, mouth filling in the true sense of the words and yet balanced, finessed and stitched appropriately with fine-grained tannin. Nothing is out of place; this river is both sheer and deep. 95 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

John Duval is a master blender. This is all about the best of the vintage, fruit from various sites across the Barossa and Eden Valleys, to morph into the mighty Eligo. A powerhouse of flavour yet never loses focus. Dark plums infused with star anise, cinnamon, Dutch licorice and soy sauce. Full-bodied with velvety rich tannins. It gets the most oak – French hogsheads 54% new, aged 18 months, and needs time to settle in. It will. 97 Points - James Halliday
