Winemaker Notes

Gentle pressings were combined with free run juice and cold settled. Fermentation commenced in stainless steel but some of the Marsanne and Viognier finished fermentation in and was aged in barrel until bottled in late September.

The aim with Plexus MRV is to promote a vibrant expression of fruit aromas from the interaction of the three varieties;... View More

Critical Acclaim

ST 92
International Wine Cellar

(61% marsanne, 26% roussanne and 13% viognier): Pale gold. Heady, expressive scents of dried citrus fruits, mango, poached pear and honey, along with a smoky quality and a hint of tarragon. Bright and lively but also dense, offering pungent lemon and orange rind, pear and honey flavors. Finishes smooth, broad and long, with very good clarity and spicy persistence. This has the heft to handle richer foods but it's not carrying any excess weight.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

This very first vintage of 2010 Plexus Blanc is a blend of 62% Marsanne, 26% Roussanne and 13% Viognier. It has a pretty honeysuckle and orange blossom scented nose with peaches, poached pears and a suggestion of white pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate has wonderfully pure stone fruit and fennel seed flavors with medium-high acid and a nice silky texture going long into the finish. It’s drinking beautifully now and should have some capacity to develop a honeyed / toasty character over the next 4-6 years.
