2017 Entity – 99 pts James Halliday

We have been fortunate to recently receive a fantastic review of our 2017 Entity Shiraz. James Halliday scored it 99 points in his review in the Weekend Australia 'Winter Warmers' feature, commenting "From old vines in five districts, fermented with submerged cap, matured in French oak (32% new) for 15 months. Complex and rich from first whiff, it doesn't waste a single berry of this great vintage. So much power, such elegance." 

This is fantastic recognition for John's 46 vintages of Shiraz winemaking in the Barossa.
