Shiraz Eligo, John Duval 2015
The power and intensity of this wine takes your breath away. Its dark, brooding black fruits are woven together by firm tannins that are an essential part of the wine.

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
