John Duval is a legendary name among Australian winemakers. Duval spent nearly three decades with Penfolds, rising to become only the third Chief Winemaker to head up the production of their incredible Grange label—widely regarded as the best red wine in the entire Southern Hemisphere. After his tenure at Penfolds, Duval began a new chapter by returning home to Adelaide and working with the vineyards that his family has farmed for five generations. In 2003, with a single wine, John Duval Wines was born. Today, under Duval’s experienced and watchful eye, they craft acclaimed wines from fruit grown in exceptional, older Barossa vineyards.
James Halliday 98 Points
“Eligo is made from the best parcels of the vintage, fermented with submerged caps in small open fermenters, matured for 20 months in French hogsheads (50% new). The tannins and oak are built into the wine like an inlaid checkerboard table created by a master craftsman with decades of experience. Like John Duval.”
James Suckling 94 Points
“Duval’s eye is good in 2016 with a super rich array of plums, chocolate and blackberries on offer. Full-bodied palate and a strong, long and attractive core of fleshy, ripe fruit. Zesty kick on the finish.”
