Editorial Reviews for John Duval Plexus Blanc

Super peppery on the nose with a rather unusual blend of floral and soil aromas along with a hint of India ink forming a base for the blueberry fruit. The oak builds a bit in the glass showing a fair veneer with air. This enters the mouth with excellent focus with a fairly bright, taut style that reveals the perfumes of flowers, green coffee, meat and something vaguely sassafras-like before the light fruit arrives. The fruit is reticent but there are flashes of great blueberry and red cherry/cranberry fruit on the mid-palate that leads to a peppery, slightly hot finish that shows really excellent depth to that succulent red berry fruit. This needs time to come together but it is already admirably complex and should improve over the next 2-5 years. 92pts

Lebhaftes, tiefes Purpurrot. Noten von warmen Maulbeeren, Kirsch und schwarz Tee mit einem Hauch von indischen Gewürzen. Im Gaumen ist er intensiv aber elegant mit hervorragenden, puren Fruchtnoten. Reif, schön integrierte Tannine und eine gute Konzentration bietet eine starke Struktur an mit einem lang anhaltenden Abgang und einer perfekt nahtlosen Balance.

This supple generous red offers juicy cherry tobacco and cream flavors finishing with crisp tannins as the flavors linger effortlessly. Shiraz Grenache and Mourvhdre. Drink now through 2015. HS Wine Spectator.

Lebhaftes, tiefes Purpurrot. In der Nase zeigt er üppige Aromen von roten Früchten mit einer pikanten Würze und feine, süssliche Holztöne. Im Gaumen ist er intensiv aber elegant.

Bright and jazzy with a smoky edge to the tart blackberry and cherry flavors picking up a licorice note on the finish. Has complexity and balance and cellaring should bring it all together. Shiraz Grenache and Mourvhdre. Best from 2012 through 2018. -HS Wine Spectator.

Purple-red; Barossa Valley blends of Shiraz/Grenache/Mourvedre seldom have the poise, conviction or richness of this wine; the flavours are multilayered yet not the least jammy, the tannins particularly good, the length all one can ask for.

Vintage: 2007 06/08/2011

Starts off with mulberry, cola, vanilla and clove, and persists that way across the creamy-textured palate. A textbook Aussie blend, marrying immediate approachability with 5-8 years of ageability. Another fine effort from former Penfolds winemaker J... Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 Duval Wines, John Plexus 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Attractive pale straw with lime tinge. Nose: Aromas of stone fruits, honeysuckle and citrus. Medium bodied with good richness and mouth feel. Palate: Flavours of mandarin, pear, fennel and Asian spice are balance with minimal acidity.
