Australian Wines

The Barossa Valley is one of Australia‘s oldest wine regions.[1] Located in South Australia, the Barossa Valley is about 56 km (35 miles) northeast of the city of Adelaide. Unlike most of Australia whose wine industry was heavily influenced by the British, the wine industry of the Barossa Valley was founded by German settlers fleeing persecution from the Prussian province of Silesia[2] (in what is now modern day Poland). The hot continental climate of the region promoted the production of very ripe grapes that was the linchpin of the early Australian fortified wine industry.

96 point (Robert Parker) 2010 John Duval “Entity” Shiraz from  Barossa Valley in Southern Australia.  This Shiraz is a full bodied wine and densely packed with black berry preserve and baking spice flavors.  The is a refreshing acid line which adds lift and some medium tannins.  We suggest getting a couple of extra bottles to lay away in your cellar. This wine will only keep getting better with age and can be enjoyed until 2024+.
