From the all time favourite Riesling, through to Chenin Blanc and the new wave of Rhone varietals in Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne we have a white to keep every one happy.
Lemon and lime abounds in the aromatic, coupled with lavender and elderflower. Crisp and dry with cruchy acidity this wine is sure to please!
Flavours of white peaches, nectarines and apricots, create a full bodied well balanced and complex wine that will continue to develop well in the bottle.
My aim with Plexus MVR is to promote a vibrant expression of fruit aromas from the interaction of the three varieties; and on the palate, to build structure and texture, rather than just acid crispness.
Varieties: Marsanne 71%, Viognier 20% and Roussanne 9%
Marsanne was sourced from the Marananga and Seppeltsfield region, Roussanne fom the Kalimna region and Viognier from Eden Valley.
The High Eden sub-region of Eden Valley is a small and unique region designated by its high altitude,
however it is also defined by the schist soils and rocky outcrops, vast exposure and undulating hillside
aspects, enhancing its suitability for growing Riesling. The skies over High Eden are typified by ‘Cirrus’
cloud formations for most of the growing and harvest seasons, making for a picturesque backdrop to the
vineyards and a perfect name for this wine. The Cirrus Riesling is made from the very best Single Vineyard
wine of High Eden and made in only exemplary years.
Dry grown, hand harvested. Single Vineyard High Eden Riesling, vines were planted in 1956 (0.8 tonnes per acre) .
A Mediterranean variety that naturally holds acidity and is used to add freshness to the white blends of the Rhone Valley.
Semillon and Ugni Blanc have been grown in the Barossa Valley since the 1850’s, self evident proof of the suitability of these varieties to the soils and climate of the Barossa Valley. The vineyards that provide the core of Lola, Ugni blanc and Semillon,
are 65, 70 and 110 years of age. Their strengths are their high natural acids, complex yet subtle herbal aromatics and fine structures. The Viognier and Muscat-a-petit Grain contribute texture, flesh and floral aromatics.
Originating from well-established Barossan vineyards planted to Marsanne, Roussanne, Vermentino, Ugni blanc and Viognier
