Description

"Released only from the best Barossa vintages, a meticulous selection of the most exceptional Shiraz we can produce. The latest release  displays the palate texture, length and restrained power that has defined this wine since the inaugural 2005 vintage release. Lifted black fruit, plum and blackberry with hints of anise and clove and earth on the nose. On the palate, it's packed with a multitude of vibrant, powerful fruit layers and a commanding depth of flavour. It also displays hints of spice and licorice and finishes with integrated, fine grippy tannins" - Winemaker Notes 

“The 2019 vintage was the first in two consecutive drought years in the Barossa, and the wines are unsurprisingly concentrated and brooding. In this 2019 Eligo Shiraz, we see lashings of exotic spice, aniseed, licorice and resinous char contained within a framework of fine, silty tannins. This is a big wine, make no mistake, but eminently balanced.” - 96 Points, Erin Larkin, Wine Advocate 

"In 2019, John Duval’s subregional shiraz blend saw the Barossa Valley just nudge out the Eden Valley, 53/47% respectively. The Eligo has always been a study of concentration of fruit and detail and nothing has changed with this release. Powerful blackberry and plum fruits, graphite-cored and studded with spice, earth and dark chocolate. Substantial granitic tannin plunges through the heady fruit providing ample support and the finish trails off admirably." - 95 Points, Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion
