One of the world’s great winemakers, John Duval was given the ‘Grange’ torch by Max Schubert, the man who created Australia’s most famous wine. John passed it on to his successor when he left Penfolds in 2003 to start his own label. He sources fruit from long-time friends in the Barossa, all of whom own vineyards with vines aged from 50 to 100 years old. The wines are made with minimal intervention and showcase the best of the Barossa.
Plexus Shiraz/Grenache/Mouvedre was John Duval’s first wine under his own label after finishing at Penfolds. The Shiraz provides the blackberry backbone and structure, the Grenache brings lifted aromatics and Mouvedre contributes dark, savoury tannins.
