    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 vintage of Entity is a well structured wine comprised of good concentration of pureBarossa dark fruit. A true reflection of Barossa's soil and climate, Entity displays youthful dark fruits of blackberry, plum and savory French oak aromas. Entity's palate is rich and generous, with concentrated dark fruit and fine, ripe tannins. The finish is elegant and carries through with excellent fruit intensity. Traditional winemaking practices and seventeen months in French oak barriques will ensure the age worthiness of this third release.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A fragrant bouquet and high-toned palate, quality oak an essential part of the wine; an almost European restraint in its make-up.

    The purple-colored 2007 Entity Shiraz spent 17 months in 30% new French oak, the balance in seasoned French and American oak. It displays an alluring nose of wood smoke, game, meat blood, Asian spices, and blueberry.

    The Wine Advocate

    Inky ruby. Dark berries, iron, Asian spices and cracked pepper on the nose. Silky in texture, offering sweet blackcurrant and blueberry flavors and supple tannins. Turns livelier with air, taking a turn to zestier red fruits while retaining power. Strikingly pure and juicy, with excellent finishing clarity and a strong echo of raspberry fruit.

    International Wine Cellar

    Firm, focused and juicy, with orange peel scented cherry and spice flavors, this feels like it's holding something back despite the generosity of flavor. Lingers well against fine tannins. Drink now through 2013. 1,000 cases imported.
