Quite simply this is one of the very best Australian wines you'll ever taste.

The solo project of John Duval, chief winemaker at Penfolds for years, and so the man who made Australia's greatest red wine, Grange. For Plexus he relies on his in-depth knowledge of the Barossa to source only the finest grapes. His goal is to give a wide array of flavours from the Shiraz (52%), Grenache (32%), and Mourvédre (16%), together with structure, balance, and length.

Premium Australian red wine that's ready to drink now, but will cellar well for 8-10 years.

Deep red colour with a tint of purple and quite a lot of oak to sniff, together with smoke, char, toast and a subtle trace of spice. The palate is medium to full-bodied and nicely smooth-textured, notwithstanding ample tannins. The style is savoury and drying, with a clean, extended finish. Huon Hooke

The Producer

One of the world’s great winemakers, John Duval was given the “Grange” torch by Max Schubert and passed it on to his successor when he left Penfolds to start out on his own with his 2003 vintage, sourcing fruit from his long-time friends in the Barossa. He consults at wineries around the world but manages to spend at least four months of the year at home in the Barosssa to make his own wines.

The Winemaker

In his own words: 'John Duval Wines will never be another Penfolds - it is simply my chance to express my 40 plus years of premium winemaking knowledge using some of the best fruit in the world.' He sources old vine fruit from some of the best vineyard sites in the Barossa, making small quantities of premium quality wines.

The Region

The Barossa Valley is situated an hour's drive north of Adelaide and is arguably the country's best known wine region, with over 150 wineries in production. With its Mediterranean climate and rich, dark soils, this is ideal red wine country with many different sub-regions giving a wide variety of styles. Rhone grapes Shiraz (Syrah) and Grenache are particularly suited to the region, producing rich, structured reds with great ageing potential.

Venison Steak with Redcurrant sauce

The rare red meat and fruity sauce work brilliantly with rich, dark reds. Go for a well-structured but fruit-driven style which will square up to the robust meat flavours and complement the redcurrant sauce. The John Duval Plexus will really compliment this dish.

Beef Goulash with Wide Egg Noodles

A rustic, hearty goulash will pair well with the smooth, concentrated flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon - try full-bodied Bordeaux or Australian blends with Merlot or Shiraz. Try our John Duval Plexus, a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre for size.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Burgers and red wine are a match made in heaven but don’t forget the blue cheese element which could scupper your wine choice. To contrast the creamy, salty notes of the cheese, head to full, fruity reds with good acidity. A big Aussie Barossa blend will do the trick.
