Concentrated black and blue fruit aromas with hints of earth, nutmeg and spicy, savory oak. The palate has layers of rich, silky dark fruits with some earthy savoriness, smoked meat and licorice. The wine is long, generous and lively, de ned by polished and persistent tannins.

Inky ruby. Hugely perfumed cherry and dark berry preserve aromas are complicated by suggestions of vanilla, exotic spices and incense. Seamless, broad and attractively sweet, offering densely packed blackberry, cherry-vanilla, mocha and fruitcake flavors and a floral nuance that builds with aeration. The strikingly long, floral- and spice-driven finish shows outstanding clarity and velvety, harmonious tannins.

Duval's flagship wine is the 2015 Eligo Shiraz, a blend of Barossa Valley and Eden Valley fruit that spent 20 months in 60% new French oak hogsheads. It's toasty and cedary, but those elements are balanced by the wine's deep, persistent dark fruit notes of blueberry, blackberry and boysenberry. Full-bodied and dense without excess weight and framed by fine-grained tannins, it's approachable now, but it should be even better in a decade.

Appealingly focused, dense and concentrated, featuring plum and berry flavors, accented by spicy details. Dashes of peppermint oil and orange zest appear on the firm finish. Drink now through 2029. 50 cases imported.
