The Shiraz was sourced from old vineyards in the Krondorf, Marananga and Ebenezer regions, Grenache from old bush vines in the Stockwell and Krondorf regions and Mourvedre from old
bush vines, the oldest over 100 years old in the Light Pass and Krondorf regions. 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 to the structure and complexity.
Blend: 52% Shiraz, 29% Grenache, 19% Mourvedre
"Bright colour; a beautifully generous, plump and fleshy blend, with a backbone of Provencal garrigue providing light to the masses of sweet red and black fruits shade; the trailing spice and purity of fruit is seamless and very long."
Australian Wine Companion
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Plexus Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre is a blend of Shiraz 52%, Grenache 29% and Mourvedre 19%. This wine opens with notes of blackberry preserves, blueberry compote and warm black plums over suggestions of vanilla, cinnamon toast, anise, espresso and mandarin peel. Full-bodied and generously fruited with warm black berry and spice flavors plus a touch of oak, it has a good backbone of medium to firm finely-grained tannins and just enough acid to balance through the long finish. It’s delicious now but should improve with 2-3 years in bottle and drink well to 2022+.
The Wine Advocate
"Bright violet color. Dark berries, licorice, mocha, lavender and black pepper on the nose. Supple and smooth in texture, with fresh blueberry and blackberry fruit complicated by touches of mocha and vanilla. Offers a suave combination of depth and vivacity, finishing with clinging sweetness and subtle floral notes."
International Wine Cellar
"This supple, generous red offers juicy cherry, tobacco and cream flavors, finishing with crisp tannins as the flavors linger effortlessly. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre."
