John Duval WInes SGM 2018 12 pack
A very rare and extraordinarily good value offer from John Duval Wines.
The 2018 vintage delivered Barossa winemakers a bounty of exceptional high quality fruit at slightly above average yields. This presented John and Tim Duval the latitude to experiment with a few new wines in addition to their core offering such as Plexus, Entity and Eligo. Post barrel classification, a special blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro was created to meet the robust demand at the time from the China market.
The current opportunity for Australian wine has been severely constrained with the imposition of special tariffs by the Chinese government, and this wine is no longer exported to the Duval's China importer. As such, Artisans has been given the opportunity to offer this to our Friends of Artisans at the special price of $240 a dozen - a saving of approximately 20% on an indicative Australian retail price of $25 a bottle.
While not as serious or structured as the Plexus SGM blend, the wine displays the characteristic brightness and texture of the 2018 vintage. A wine that drinks beatifully when young, and to be best enjoyed over the next few years. This wine provides a terrific introduction to John Duval Wines and the exceptional vineyard resources at their disposal.
It is unlikely the wine will be released again, and with limited stocks we encourage you to place your order with urgency.
