John Duval Plexus

The 2005 John Duval Plexus is an excellent wine. It is a GSM wine from the Barossa which is much more serious than most. The wine has great balance between fruit and oak, and primary and secondary characteristics. Redcurrant is the dominant fruit flavour. The wine is big, still very young and made to last. The mouthfeel is very satisfying, although the finish falls a little short for this substantial wine.

The wine shows the considerable winemaking skills of John Duval as well as his access to excellent fruit.
