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: Deep purple-red.
Nose: Lifted black lum, blackberry and blueberry with hints of earth, anise and spice, savoury oak.
Palate: Elegant expression of rich dark fruits with some earth savouriness and smoked meat flavours. Long and intense with excellent fruit purity and freshness, finishing with a taut backbone and persistent fine tannin structure.

Region: Barossa

Varieties: Shiraz 100%. Eligo represents the best of my 2014 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.
