John Duval Wines Concilio Grenache Shiraz 2022
The development and naming of this wine is in many ways symbolic of the evolution of John Duval Wines as they bring together two generations of the Duval family in the business with Tim Duval joining his father John ahead of the 2016 vintage. And whilst they continue our love of working with old Barossa vineyards, this wine also reflects the style evolution of Barossa Grenache that is being led by the region’s many small artisan winemakers. Concilio Grenache was jointly conceived by John and Tim, and is a wine representative of the ever-broadening shift away from the sweet, confectioned expressions of Barossa Grenache prevalent in the 1990’s, to wines that display more vibrancy, texture and savouriness. Wines that represent what they admire most of this variety, and wines that are eminently suitable to accompanying food.
Grape Variety: Grenache (86%), Shiraz (14%)
