John Duval, Concilio Grenache/Shiraz 2018

John Duval and his son Tim are making superb Barossa reds in a style that is happily different from that of John’s former employer, Penfolds. This Grenache-driven blend is just 15% Shiraz and has a commensurately lighter colour and fragrant raspberry, herbal, possibly slightly stemmy bouquet and a medium body. It’s fresh and fruit-driven, and the tannins are gentle, making an attractive early drinking style.
