John Duval "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. Traditional, low intervention winemaking techniques are employed with Plexus, allowing the wine to be approachable in its youth, but also have great cellaring potential for improvement in the bottle for at least 8-10 years."
This wine has a deep crimson colour and aromatic red fruits which are supported by vibrant plum. Earthy spice characters combine well with a touch of savoury oak. On the palate it is rich, round and full of concentrated, bright berry fruit. These flavours are supported by vibrant acidity and soft, ripe tannins. A touch of oak adds complexity and the finish is long and layered.
