John Duval Plexus 2016
Other Reds »
My aim with Plexus is to express the wide spectrum of red fruit flavours from Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre, but also provide structure with a seamless balance and long finish. A low percentage of new oak adds complexity rather than dominate the berry fruit. Traditional, low intervention winemaking techniques are employed with Plexus, allowing the wine to be approachable in its youth but also have great potential for improvement in the bottle, under good cellaring conditions, for at least 8-10 years.
Colour: Vibrant, deep crimson red-purple
Nose: Fragrant aromatic and spicy nose, showing an array of red fruits and subtle oak.
Palate: A flavoursome compote of red fruits, black fruits and a variety of spices. Ripe, fine tannins and good concentration provide structure, length and a seamless balance.
