John Duval Plexus Sgm Australian Meritage 2003

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Chewy, with firm tannins clamping down on the subtler currant, licorice, pepper and cedar flavors. Lingers impressively, but needs time to open up. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best after 2007. 500 cases imported. -HS Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2003 Duval Wines, John Plexus 750ml

Winemaking John Duval, Chief winemaker of Penfolds Grange from 1986-2002, celebrates the release of “Plexus” GSM and “Entity” Shiraz under his proprietary label, John Duval Wines. Duval is one of Australia 's most highly regarded winemakers. He has been honored with Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year award in 1995, as well as International Winemaker of the Year (International Wine and Spirit Competition, UK, 1989) and twice recipient of Red Winemaker of the Year (International Wine Challenge, UK, 1991 & 2000). He currently resides in the Barossa Valley , one of Australia 's most famous wine regions, particularly known for its old vine Shiraz . Four generations of the Duval clan have been vignerons in South Australia . Viticulture The inspiration of the Barossa Valley’s old vine, low yielding Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre created Plexus, combining elements into a beautifully structured blend. Traditional winemaking practices and fifteen months in French oak barriques will ensure the age worthiness of this first ever release, ensuring a long cellar life. Entity Shiraz is an intricately structured wine comprised of rich and vibrant Shiraz fruit. A true reflection of Barossa's soil and climate, Entity displays deep color and distinctive structure. Intense and elegant, Entity expresses aromas of ripe blackberry, blueberry, and a hint of spice. Read less
