About This Wine
The Plexus Red is John Duval's Barossa GSM, based around the ideas of balance and syngery.
John and his son Tim combine fruit from across the region to find just the right balance of stucture, intensity and levity. The wine sits bold and rich in the glass - it's the quniessential Barossa GSM, you might say.
In this wine you see the coming together of more than 40 years of experience and some of the Barossa's best vineyards.
Value for money wise, the Plexus over-delivers year-in, year-out.
|Varietal(s)||Shiraz/Syrah Grenache Mourvèdre|
Barossa Valley Wine
The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.
A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.
Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.
