John Duval Plexus GSM 2013
92 pts “Broad, expressive and open-textured, with a sense of restraint to the black cherry, blackberry, floral and wet earth flavors, finishing with density, harmony and persistence. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre.” Harvey Steinman Wine Spectator 2015 91 pts “Medium to deep red colour with a trace of purple. The spicy but subtle bouquet shows some sweet and lightly herbal Grenache and Mataro pepper. The palate is likewise, with some plum and vanilla notes. It’s an elegant, medium bodied red with a measured tannin backbone which dries the finish. Very pleasant drinking already.” Huon Hooke www.huonhooke.com July 2015 94 pts “In beautiful condition and shape. It tastes beautiful. Raspberry, blueberry and blackberry, no alarms or surprises, complemented by woody spice and fine, smoky oak. Everything is where it should be where you’d hope it to be.” James Halliday Wine Companion 2016 93 pts “A blend of old vineyards across the Barossa floor, Plexus is a blend that evenly unites the black fruits of shiraz with the lively red berry fruits of Grenache, supported by the structure and savoury personality of mourvedre. The result is an appealing fruity and spicy style of well-framed, finely ground tannins.” Tyson Stelzer Barossa Living 2015 4.5/5 Stars “What I wrote about the first impressions of the Annexus applies here as well. A whiff of floral primary Grenache aroma shows through, but there’s a lot more – brooding blackberry and what the French call “garrigue”, which relates to herbs of Provence like rosemary and lavender. The palate confirms the nose. Again, it’s all about the savoury tannins matching the fruit intensity. A special SGM.” Lester Jesburg June 2015
