Winemaker's Notes

Number 24 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2007!

The 2005 vintage of Entity is an intricately structured wine comprised of rich and vibrant Shiraz fruit. A true reflection of Barossa's soil and climate, Entity displays deep color and distinctive structure. Intense and elegant, Entity expresses aromas of ripe blackberry, blueberry and a hint of spice.

Traditional winemaking practices and eighteen months in French oak barriques will ensure the age worthiness of this second release. Enjoy the 2005 vintage now or cellar it for 10 years to garner additional complexity.

"A beautiful evocation of plum and blackberry balanced against a veil of creamy oak - but only a veil. It's the fruit that distinguishes the long, expressive finish. Shiraz. Best from 2009 through 2017."

Unfortunately, this wine didn't do much for me. Definitely palatable but nothing special either. There is plenty of Shiraz out there in this price range that will knock your socks off. For me, this just wasn't one of them.
