The 2006 vintage of Plexus is an intricately structured blend comprised of rich and vibrant fruit from Barossa Valley's old, low yielding vines. A true refection of Barossa's soil and climate, Plexus expresses a supple and silky mouth feel and a spicy, ripe red fruit finish. Intense and elegant, Plexus demonstrates an impressive concentration and structure with a seamless balance.
Traditional winemaking practices and sixteen months in French oak barriques will ensure the age worthiness of this third release. Enjoy the 2005 vintage now or cellar it for 8-10 years to garner additional complexity.
"The 2006 Plexus is composed of 52% Shiraz, 30% Grenache, and 18% Mourvedre. Purple-colored, it offers up an exotic concoction of underbrush, violets, leather, black cherry, and blueberry pie. On the palate, this sexy effort is opulent, succulent, incipiently complex, and altogether hedonistic. It should perform well for a decade. In the scheme of things, it is also a terrific value. John Duval was the principal winemaker at Penfolds Grange from 1986 to 2002."
Crimson-purple; a beautifully balanced and utterly seamless array of red and black fruits, without a scintilla of confection character; lovely now or in 10 years. Bargain.
