"Dark berry fruit marks the nose of Duval's 2016 Entity Shiraz. Blackberries, blueberries and plums pick up hints of campfire, charcoal and grilled meat, making it a complete, savory wine, not a simple fruit bomb. It's medium to full-bodied, controlled and contained, without any rough edges and a crisp finish. Drink: 2018-2025. 91 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."
