    John Duval continues to "bring the pain" as it were with this bold, spicy Aussie gem. Duval still reigns as one of Australia's top winemakers and you don't have to spend up to get the quality. Full of brambly blackcurrant, dried blueberry, smoky tar and savory spices, this is fleshy and bold but still retains a finesse that leaves many other big reds scrambling to keep up. Always a favorite!

    There is something about catching a wine right as it's beginning to hit its stride. This is absolutely the case with the 2014 John Duval Plexus, which is juicy, supple and delicious. The brightness of Grenache is a perfect counterpoint to the weight and deeper pitch of Syrah and Mourvedre. A perfect example of the kind ripe yet balanced deliciousness which first put the Barossa Valley on the map.

    Duval does it again with this rich, succulent Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre blend. John Duval has been working and living in the Barossa all his life, and his wines are a true reflection of the vast knowledge he's gained of the region. Almost richer in style than his Entity Shiraz, deep red fruit and Christmas spices are intertwined here and culminate in a long and broad mouthfeel. Any fans of this classic blend will not find fault with this one, very reminiscent of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but with a memorable Australian flair.
