John Duval Entity Shiraz 2014
STYLE: My aim with Entity is to produce an elegant Shiraz true to the Barossa. The 2013 Entity again includes some Eden Valley Shiraz to help maintain the elegance and style of Entity. 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.
TASTING: Colour: Deep purple red. Nose: Dark fruit expression of blackberry and plum, complexed with savoury French oak. Palate: Full bodied and generous with excellent depth of blackberry fruit, supported by the tannin structure. Texture and structure will enable good cellaring potential.
