John Duval Plexus Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre 2018



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, cinnamon, woodsy spice and a hint of smokey oak

Palate: Generous layers of red and black fruits, plenty of savoury spice and velvety tannins finishing long and pure.

The parcels of fruit were fermented separately with a submerged cap in small open stainless-steel fermenters. A portion of the Grenache ferment included whole bunches to accentuate the savoury aspects of the variety. The wines were barrel maturated for 15 months, with 10% in new fine grain French oak hogsheads and the balance in older seasoned hogsheads. The final blend assemblage comprised:

Shiraz (49%), Grenache (34%) and Mourvèdre (17%).

Alc/Vol: 14.5%
