John Duval Plexus Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre 2015
The 2015 vintage started with a warmer than usual spring followed by early, but even, flowering and fruit-set. Frost, particularly in the Northern Barossa reduced yields however the conditions during fruit ripening were pleasingly mild and dry with rain in mid-January brining some welcome relief.
Colour: Vibrant purple with deep red hues
Nose: Dark berries and bramble with a dusting of spices, licorice and dried herbs
Palate: Medium bodied with a generous core of ripe black berries and supporting red fruits. Ample structure provided by fine grainy tannins with a long spicy finish
