Wine Maker's Notes
John Duval, after 28 years with Penfolds, announces the premier release of "Entity", under his proprietary label, John Duval Wines. The 2004 Entity was inspired by Australia’s most famous varietal, Shiraz. The outcome of a singular grape variety, Entity epitomizes Barossa Valley’s best old vine, low yielding Shiraz vineyards.
Entity is an intricately structured wine comprised of rich and vibrant Shiraz fruit. A true reflection of Barossa’s soil and climate, the 2004 Entity exhibits deep color and distinctive structure. Intense and elegant, Entity expresses aromas of ripe blackberry, blueberry, and a hint of spice. Traditional winemaking practices and seventeen months in French oak barriques will ensure the age worthiness of this premier release. Enjoy the 2004 vintage now or cellar it for 10 years to garner additional complexity.
