John Duval is one of the world's best known winemakers and comes from a family that boasts four generations of South Australian vignerons. In 2003, after 28 years with Penfolds, including 16 years as Chief Winemaker, John developed his own label. Utilising old vine Barossa Valley fruit, John has created five stunning wines within his range. You will find his wines reflect the terroir of the Barossa and the handcrafted attention of all things 'John Duval'. This year John Duval Wines reflect on the developement and successes of the family winery as they enter their second decade, together with John's continuing involvementin his two joint venture projects in Chile and Washington State.
Plexus MVR is a vibrant expression of fruit aromas from the interaction of the three varieties. The palate shows richness, and structure whilst still being bright and fresh.
John's aim with Plexus is to express the wide spectrum of red fruit flavours from Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre and also provide structure with a seamless balance and long finish. Traditional, low intervention winemaking techniques are employed allowing the wine to be approachable in its youth, but also cellar for 8-10 years.
John Duval's aim with Entity is to produce an elegant Shiraz true to the Barossa. The 2016 release again includes some Eden Valley Shiraz to help maintain the elegance and style of Entity.
The inspiration from the Barossa’s best old vine Grenache vineyards created Annexus, an addition to our Plexus blend. Annexus is a small unique blend selected from our best old, low yielding Grenache vineyards, made only in the best Grenache years.
The fruit for this first straight varietal Mataro has come from the Northern Barossan parish of Light Pass. A selection of low yield, dry gown vines makes for a intensely flavoured and full bodied red wine!
Production limited to just 250 cases!
