John Duval

About John Duval

John Duval is an internationally acclaimed winemaker who formerly headed the winemaking team at Australia’s most legendary estate, Penfolds. Responsible for producing the iconic Penfolds Grange, as well as new cuvées such Bin 407 and ‘RWT’ Shiraz during his tenure, Duval is one of the single most influential winemakers over the last century.

 

Experiencing his first vintage at Australia’s greatest estate in 1974, Duval spent the following 12 years learning from founder Max Schubert and head winemaker Don Ditter. 1986 saw John Duval become only the third person responsible for one of the world’s greatest wines in Penfolds Grange.

 

Duval’s mastery in winemaking led him to establish his own winery, John Duval Wines, in 2003. With a focus on old vine Shiraz and other Rhône varietals, he makes small volumes of magical wines from the Barossa Valley. Since 2016, John Duval has been joined by his son, Tim. The father-and-son partnership continues the obsessive experimentation and introduction of new and exciting cuvées to the market.

John Duval Annexus Mataro 2017 (6x75cl)

James Halliday (97)

Made from centenarian vines in Light Pass, matured for 15 months in used French oak. This is a glorious manifestation of the '17 vintage, its cool conditions retaining freshness of fruit at a very modest alcohol level. A sheer pleasure to drink.

John Duval Annexus Mataro 2018 (6x75cl)

Halliday's Wine Companion (97)

It's all about putting the spotlight on fruit from a dry-grown centenarian vineyard in Light Pass. I love this. It's a commanding wine. It oscillates between deep, dark, spicy fruit to savoury, meaty flavours. It's long and pure, with poised yet determined tannins. I doubt mataro gets any better than this. Respect.

John Duval Entity Shiraz 2017 (6x75cl)

James Halliday (99)

From old vines in five districts, fermented with submerged cap, matured in French hogsheads (32% new) for 15 months. Complex and rich from the first whiff through to the aftertaste, not wasting a single berry in this great vintage. So much power, such elegance.

John Duval Plexus Shiraz-Grenache-Mourvedre 2018 (6x75cl)

The Real Review (95)

Quite striking in the glass, vibrant crimson-red with cherry-red edges. A spicy, subdued nose of ironstone and red licorice, oak-char and cinnamon. Fruit emerges on the palate, though there's nothing sweet about it. Red berries peel off a tightly-wound core of spice and soft tannin. Understated and classy - a pinot-esque elegance to it. Beautiful wine.
