Jogn Duval Wines - Entity

 

 

2010 ENTITY

My aim with Entity is to produce an elegant Shiraz true to the Barossa.

The 2010 Entity again includes some Eden Valley Shiraz to help maintain the elegance and style of Entity. The more subtle French oak was chosen to compliment the ripe dark fruits. Traditional, low intervention winemaking techniques were employed with Entity, allowing the wine to be approachable in its youth, but with ample structure and fruit depth to allow great potential for improvement in the bottle under good cellaring conditions, for at least 15 years.

Region: Barossa Valley

Variety: Shiraz 100%, sourced from old vineyards in the Krondorf, Tanunda, Light Pass and Eden Valley Regions

Winemaking: Fermentation with submerged cap and small open stainless steel fermenters.

Oak Maturation: 100% barrel matured for 18 months, with 36% new fine grain French oak hogsheads (300 litres) and the balance in 2, 3 and 4 year old hogsheads.

Technical Notes:
Alcohol 14.5%
pH 3.48
TA 6.5g/l

Tasting:

  • Colour: Dense ruby purple
  • Nose: Expressive blackberry and blueberry fruit with subtle complexing savoury French oak.
  • Palate: Youthful structure with restrained power, but retains elegance. Intense dark fruits supported by fine tannins and spicy oak
