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.
Sagrantino is deeply coloured and is one of the most tannic grape varieties, despite generally being a medium bodied wine the plumage of tannin promotes the mouthfeel. The exotic red cherry, dried herb, and smoky blue-fruits typify the aroma and flavours of Sagrantino.
The unique personality of Sagrantino is beautifully captured in the label art by Bonnie Supple.
The idea of blending Shiraz from the Eastern and Western extremities of the Barossa make perfectly good sense. The ripe plum, blackberry and white chocolate flavours of the Western Barossa Valley integrate perfectly with the perfumed red fruits, liquorice and spice of the Eastern Eden Valley, coming together to produce a delicious, rich, flavoursome and ultimately beautifully balanced wine.
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.

The KENNEDY is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Valley Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vigneron’s who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards, which the Barossa enjoys today.
The Grenache fruit is the ‘soul’ of this blend and is from an exceptionally low yielding 50+ year-old Light Pass Vineyard. Originally planted by the Kennedy Family, with ownership eventually being passed onto the charismatic Leo ‘Joe’ KENNEDY who nurtured the vines for many years, selling his prized fruit to local winemakers.
Perfectly stored in John Duval's own museum here in the Barossa. this 10-year-old red is soft, supple and sublime. Stewed cherry, plum, date and raisin aromatics. Ever so gentle brick red colour on the edge of the glass, soft tannin and remarkable persistent flavours.
Planted in 1941 these deep rooted vines provide Grenache of exceptional quality. Minimal intervention in the vineyard makes for an amazingly charasmatic wine.
Rich and warm and definitely intense having benefited from an Amarone method applied to the fruit prior to vinifying. Amarone means to dry the fruit before processing. Removal of water intensifies flavours and we can present an amazingly exaggerated Barossa Shiraz.
