"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. Drink: 2018-2035. 94 points

Catching up with John Duval is a lesson in modern Australian winemaking. He made Grange for Penfolds, working with Max Schubert and Don Ditter before serving as chief winemaker from 1987–2002, so he's got historic bona fides. He seems to know all the growers in Barossa, where he's made his own wines since 2003. His son, Tim, recently joined the family business, but the big news this year is the release of their first varietal Mataro, from centenary vines in Light Pass."
