John Duval Wines will never be another Penfolds - it is simply my chance to express my 40 odd years of premium winemaking knowledge using some of the best fruit in the world.
About The Wine
John Duval is better known for his exceptional reds, but his one white wine is a great example of his winemaking prowess.
The 'Plexus' Marsanne Roussanne Viognier blend is based on the white wines of the Rhone Valley in France, and while it is rich and textural as the style demands it maintains its poise and is never flabby. It's a wonderful example of this famous style.
As Campbell Mattinson said in his 92+ point review, "We’re in excellent territory, and hands, here."
If you're a serious collector of premium Aussie wines then John Duval is a label you need in your cellar.
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.
