John Duval, after 28 years with Penfolds, has released his second vintage of "Plexus", under his proprietary label, John Duval Wines. Inspired by Barossa Valley's best old vine, low yielding vineyards, the 2004 Plexus is a blend of Shiraz (49%), Grenache (27%) and Mourvedre (24%). Intense and elegant, Plexus expresses rich, red fruit aromas with savory spice and subtle oak sweetness.
Plexus is an intricately structured blend comprised of rich and vibrant fruit from Barossa Valley's old, low yielding vines. A true refection of Barossa's soil and climate, the 2004 Plexus expresses a supple and silky mouth feel and a ripe red fruit finish. Intense and elegant, Plexus exhibits impressive concentration and structure with a seamless balance.
Traditional winemaking practices and fifteen months in French oak barriques will ensure the age worthiness of this second release. Enjoy the 2004 vintage now or cellar it for 8-10 years to garner additional complexity.
