Plexus, John Duval, Barossa Valley, Australia 2013
A mighty fine wine from one of Australia's finest winemakers, John Duval. His aim was to express the wide spectrum of red fruit flavours from Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre and also provide structure with a seamless balance and long finish.
The wine is crimson, purple-red in colour. The nose gives an array of red and black berry aromatics, wild berries and cassis. The palate is generous, with soft texture and fine tannins. Flavours of blackberry and dark cherry with hints of asian spice and Christmas cake.
