Plexus Shiraz/Grenache/Mouvedre was John Duval's first wine under his own label after finishing at Penfolds. The Shiraz provides the blackberry backbone and structure, the Grenache brings lifted aromatics and Mouvedre contributes dark, savoury tannins.

"The 2007 Plexus Grenache (28%)-Shiraz (51%)-Mourvedre (21%) was aged for 16 months in predominantly seasoned French oak. It is dark ruby-colored with a perfumed nose of cedar, tobacco, lavender, kirsch, and black cherry. Velvety-textured, rich, and concentrated, it is packed with flavor, is impeccably balanced."
