John Duval Plexus Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre 2019
John Duvals' affinity for working with old vine Barossa Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvédre began with John’s time at Penfolds, and continues with this wine - the first to be released by John Duval Wines’ from his inaugural vintage in 2003. The aim of Plexus is to express a wide spectrum of fruit flavours, whilst ensuring seamless integration of the contrasting characters of the three varietals. Shiraz provides rich dark fruits and mid palate weight, whilst Grenache delivers a bright flavour spectrum of red fruits and spiced notes. Old vine Mourvèdre is integral to the blend, ensuring a good firm backbone of savoury tannin and a long finish.
Nose: Lifted vibrant red fruits, with underlying notes of liquorice, cinnamon and a hint of smokey oak
Palate: Generous, velvety layers of red and black fruits, hints of savoury spice and gentle tannins finishing very long and pure.
