Reviews & Awards: John Duval is a master blender. This is all about the best of the vintage, fruit from various sites across the Barossa and Eden Valleys, to morph into the mighty Eligo. A powerhouse of flavour yet never loses focus. Dark plums infused with star anise, cinnamon, Dutch licorice, and soy sauce. Full-bodied with velvety rich tannins. It gets the most oak French hogsheads 54% new, aged 18 months, and needs time to settle in.
