About The Wine

John Duval is better known for his exceptional reds, which makes sense considering this is the only one white wine in his line up. But you better believe this isn't one to sleep on.

The 'Plexus' is a blend of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier, taking inspiration from the white wines of the Rhone Valley in France. 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.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The objective of our Plexus white is to create a textured wine with vibrant expression of fruit aroma on the nose, and a palate of great flavour and structure enhanced by crisp acidity. Partial oak fermentation and maturation along with lees ageing promotes a seamless integration of the varietal components and enhances the textural elements of the blend.

Marsanne was sourced from Marananga, Roussanne from Kalimna and Viognier from Eden Valley.

Vibrant and lifted aromas of apricots and peaches, citrus and ginger flower.

Blend : Roussanne (49%), Marsanne (43%), Viognier (8%)

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"John Duval's Plexus, a Rhône-inspired white blend, is consistently delicious. This release is a blend of 59/43/8% roussanne/marsanne/viognier. Plate straw in the glass, with vivid aromas of sherbety citrus and stone fruits, underscored by hints of soft spice, marzipan, clotted cream and white flowers. Detailed, pithy and refreshing, it's textural and moreish to the end." - Dave Brookes (Halliday Wine Companion)
