Jogn Duval Wines - Entity

 

 

2011 ENTITY

My aim with Entity is to produce an elegant Shiraz true to the Barossa. The cooler 2011 vintage has added more savoury and spice notes to the usual black and blue fruit.

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 8-10 years.

Region: Barossa

Variety: Shiraz 100%, sourced from old vineyards in the Light Pass, Tanunda and Krondorff regions

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

Oak Maturation: 100% barrel matured for 14 months, with 25% new fine grain French oak hogsheads (300 litres) and the balance in 2, 3 and 4 year old hogsheads.

Technical Notes:
Alcohol 14.0%
pH 3.56
TA 6.3g/l

Tasting:

  • Colour: Dense ruby purple
  • Nose: Attractive black and red fruit with savoury notes and black pepper spice.
  • Palate: Elegant palate with blackberry fruit, complexed with savoury notes of clove and pepper. Fine tannins and mineral acidity give balance.
