The medium to dark garnet-hued 2013 Plexus SGM red wine blend presents an appealing nose of kirsch, warm red currants and spiced dark fruits with basic subtleties of flower petals, dried herbs, cinnamon, and pepper. The wine is medium to full-bodied with simply enough expressive fruit on the palate, it has medium notes of chewy tannins, brilliant acidity, and a long finish.
John Duval is a standout amongst Australia's most exceptionally respected winemakers. Raised on a South Australian ranch with three ages of grape producers before him, his vinous way was destined. In any case, it was amid his 28-year residency with Penfolds that his enthusiasm for the celebrated Barossa Valley prospered. As Chief Winemaker and caretaker of Australia's most popular wine, Grange, he was instrumental in setting up Penfolds as one of the world's extraordinary wineries. His honors incorporate being named UK Wine and Spirit Competition's International Winemaker of the Year, Red Winemaker of the Year (twice) and getting Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year grant.
