About The Wine
After a lifetime of making wine in the Barossa Valley, John Duval has access to some of the region's most precious vines.
In the most excellent vintages, he sets aside a small portion of the Grenache he acquires to be vinified and bottled as a stand-alone Grenache release. The Annexus is one of the most compelling expressions of Grenache in the famous region. Ancient vines in the hands of a master.
It doesn't get much better than this.
Mike Bennie noted in his 94 point review, "It’s a beauty."
It's a wine of great detail and finesse and will make a superb addition to the cellars of all Grenache enthusiasts.
About John Duval
John Duval is an international winemaking legend, and one of our country's bonafide wine superstars. For 29 years he was a winemaker (16 years as chief) at Barossa Valley winery Penfolds, and was responsible during that time for putting together Grange and his signature wine, the RWT.
For the last decade plus, Duval has spent his time traversing the globe, making high-quality wines in Europe, the North-West of the USA and even Chile. But his love remains the Barossa Valley, with his private label wines representing a chance to try some stunning wines at very reasonable prices.
Now with his own label (established in 2003) in full-flight and his son Tim stepping into the family business, John's legacy as one of the Barossa Valley's finest winemakers of his generation continues to grow.
