John Duval Wines ‘Plexus’ Shiraz Grenache Mourvèdre 2017
The Shiraz was sourced from old vineyards in the Tanunda, Krondorf and Ebenezer districts, Grenache from the Tanunda and Ebenezer region, and Mourvèdre from the Light Pass region. A true reflection of Barossa’s soil and climate, Plexus expresses complex aromas and flavors combining red and dark fruits with savory notes. The palate is framed by youthful fine tannins and subtle savory French oak adds structure and complexity.

The Wine Front – All the right ingredients for the Barossa red wine fiends; John Duval winemaker, old vine, low yield, mesh of shiraz-grenache-mourvedre. Righteous. Only 10% new oak is used in this wine, though it is matured for 15 months in barrel. From the get-go these have been honest-to-goodness wines. A good year here too. Reserved sweet-berried fruit scents, faint nougat, cedar, liquorice, undergrowth. Attractive set up. Medium weight, fruit forward, fine ribbons of tannin, bright acidity. This has such deliciousness to it. Lighter shade of Barossa in a way, fine feeling, but full flavoured, with crisp edges and a fresh finish. Indeed, it’s probably a bit light on for stalwarts of true blue Barossa red wines, but it is very good in its own way.
Wine Spectator – A sophisticated, spicy mix of date bread, cherry compote and clove flavors. Plump and velvety, with persistence and harmony on the finish. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2027.
