When it comes to Australian winemakers, few are as esteemed as John Duval. Appointed Chief Winemaker at Penfolds in 1986, Duval followed in the footsteps of Australian winemaking greats including Max Schubert and Don Ditter, and was the custodian of Penfolds Grange for almost 30 years. In 2003, John Duval established his eponymous label, with a focus on old vine Barossa Valley Shiraz, along with some select other Rhone varietals.
This 2021 John Duval Plexus White is a classic 'Rhone style' white wine blend Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. This offers plenty of vibrant, lifted aromas of stone fruits, ginger honeysuckle and citrus. The approachable and elegant palate shows excellent fruit purity and ample texture, with plenty of nectarine, mandarin and spice filling the palate.
