John Duval Integro Cabernet Shiraz 2017
A new wine to the John Duval range, the purpose of creating Integro is to craft a benchmark Cabernet Shiraz blend that celebrates exceptional Barossa vineyards.
The Cabernet was matured in French oak hogsheads for 18 months before blending with a small parcel of exceptional 2017 Barossa Valley Shiraz (10%) to balance the palate and produce a complete wine; hence the name Integro – meaning to make whole – was assigned to this special wine.
Whilst true to the John Duval style of elegance and structure, and approachable as a young wine, Integro is designed to reward extended bottle maturation. We sense the wine will enter its peak drinking window around 15 years from vintage, but like all great Cabernet Sauvignon the opportunity for ageing is considerably longer.
Can be bought as a single bottle or in a beautiful wooden box of 3 bottles,for cellaring or as a gift for someone who appreciates the pinnacle of great wine.
