This Shiraz brings attractive aromas of black fruit, earth and hints of anise and clove to the nose, opening out into a palate that is packed with vibrant fruit layers and a commanding depth of flavour. The wine shows complex hints of spice and liquorice, finishing with fine, integrated tannins.

The process of creating Eligo begins pre-harvest in the vineyard, where the most exceptional parcels of fruit for the vintage are identified. Grapes are sourced from old vineyards from the Ebenezer, Moppa and Eden Valley regions, comprising of 30% Barossa Valley and 70% Eden Valley fruit. The Barossa Valley components deliver depth and structure to the palate and an overlay of rich concentrated fruit flavour that is complimented by the vibrant aromatics of the Eden Valley components.

One of the world’s great winemakers, John Duval was given the ‘Grange’ torch by Max Schubert, the man who created Australia’s most famous wine. John passed it on to his successor when he left Penfolds in 2003 to start his own label. He sources fruit from long-time friends in the Barossa, all of whom own vineyards with vines aged from 50 to over 100 years old. The wines are made with minimal intervention and showcase the best of the Barossa.
