John Duval, ‘Entity’ Barossa Shiraz

Australia | 2020

£33.50 a bottle

John Duval, ‘Entity’ is an elegant expression of Shiraz from old Barossa vineyards. Approximately one third of the wine comes from old Shiraz vines in the Eden Valley, contributing lifted aromatics and freshness to the wine. This wine is a vibrant purple-red in colour with aromas of violets, boysenberry and blackcurrants and notes of anise and cloves. On the palate, fine tannins are balanced by the vibrant acidity. This wine has fresh flavours of plum and blueberries complemented by hints of cedar and earthy spices.

Sourced from old vineyards in the Krondorf, Tanunda, Light Pass and Eden Valley regions of the Barossa. The Barossa valley region incorporates both the Barossa Valley itself and the Eden Valley, making it one of the few areas in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions, as the latter is at higher altitude. A high diurnal temperature variation slows the ripening process.


One of the world’s great winemakers, John Duval was given the ‘Grange’ torch by Max Schubert, the man who created Australia’s most famous wine. John passed it on to his successor when he left Penfolds in 2003 to start his own label. He sources fruit from long-time friends in the Barossa, all of whom own vineyards with vines aged from 50 to 100 years old. The wines are made with minimal intervention and showcase the best of the Barossa.

Grape Variety

100% Shiraz.

Dry conditions for the second year in a row presented some challenges, with yields again well down. Despite the dry conditions, February and March were cooler than average, providing a long and even ripening period. The resulting wines are of very high quality, with great purity and depth of fruit characters.

Food Match

Perfect partner for that griddled Sirloin steak and Portobello mushrooms; also worked very well recently with a Hungarian goulash!

Suitable for vegetarians & vegans.
