From the Winemaker:

My aim with Eligo is to produce a structured but elegant expression of Barossa Shiraz. A wine with restrained power, rich texture and palate length.

Tasting:

Colour: Dark purple-red.
Nose: Concentrated black and blue fruits with hints of earth, nutmeg and spicy, savoury oak.
Palate: Layers of rich, silky dark fruits with some earthy savouriness, smoked meat adn liquorice. A long, generous and lively palate defiend by polished and persistent tannins.

Region: Barossa

Varieties: Shiraz 100%. Eligo represents the best of my 2015 vintage and is sourced from some excellent Shiraz vineyards in the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley regions.

Winemaking: Fermentation with submerged cap in small stainless steel fermenters. Some batches had up to 2 weeks on skins.

Oak Maturation: 100% barrel matured for 20 months with 60% new fine grain French oak hogsheads (300 litre) and the balance 2 and 3 year old hogsheads.
