John Duval Wines Plexus Red 2021


The aim of Plexus is to express a wide spectrum of fruit flavours whilst ensuring seamless integration of the contrasting characters of the three varietals. Shiraz provides rich dark fruits and mid-palate weight, whilst Grenache delivers a bright flavour spectrum of red fruits and spiced notes. Old vine Mourvèdre is integral to the blend, ensuring a good firm backbone of savoury tannin and a long finish.

Deep crimson. Lovely dark plum. Blackberry, mocha aromas with lifted liquorice notes. A well-balanced wine with deep set blackberry, dark plum, dark chocolate fruits, fine cedary, gravelly tannins and integrated walnutty, sandalwood notes. Chocolaty finish. Now – 2032.
