2018 John Duval ‘Concilio’ Barossa Valley Grenache Blend
John Duval comes from a family that boasts four generations of SA vignerons. He spent 28 years at Penfolds, 16 of those as chief winemaker and the main man behind Grange. Ten or so years ago he left to start his own brand. Last year his eldest son, Tim joined him as his assistant. This is their first release together, an old vine Grenache (85%) / Shiraz (15%). It’s chunky, dark and fleshy.
