He used to make Grange, Australia's most famous wine (at $500 a bottle). Now John Duval makes his own. And very fine it is. Grown in the warm Barossa Valley known for bold fruit, this red is smooth and luscious, with cherry, dark chocolate and peppercorn flavours. Big but balanced and complex. Try it with lamb chops or steak, or cellar it for up to 10 years (yes, even under that screw cap). $57.99 in British Columbia.
