Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The 2008 Eligo Shiraz is perfumed with concentrated blackberry, blueberry and fragrant oak characters. Its rich palate has layers of dark fruits and smokey oak without being overly extracted or jammy. Eligo's texture is rich and creamy with ample tannin structure for balance. The elegant, refined finish further defines John's style. Eligo will age well for at least fifteen years under proper cellaring conditions.
"The 2008 Eligo Shiraz reveals a very deep purple-black color and pronounced creme de cassis, licorice, dark chocolate and nut aromas with underlying loam, cedar, dried plum and espresso notes. Full bodied and yet remarkably elegant in the mouth, it has complex layers of savory and warm black fruit flavors balanced by refreshing acid and a medium to firm level of very fine tannins, finishing with great persistence. Still tight-knit and primary, it should drink best 2014 to 2024+."
The Wine Advocate
"Duval used to make Grange, so it is no surprise that his current luxury Shiraz is so successful. The 2008 Eligo oozes with oaky sweetness—vanilla, maple syrup and brown sugar notes—but balances that with potent cassis fruit and somehow ends on dry, savory notes of tobacco and spice."
"Bright and lively, with lots of raspberry and cherry fruit on a medium-weight frame. A hint of mocha adds interest, remaining open and expressive through the gentle, focused finish. An elegant package."
"Glass-staining ruby. Intensely floral aromas of fresh red and dark berries, candied cherry and cracked pepper. Silky in texture, with midweight black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors, nervy mineral cut and slow-building tannins. This balanced, elegant wine has the energy to reward patience."
