Marsanne grapes were sourced from the Marananga and Seppeltsfield regions, the Roussanne from the Kalimna region and the Viognier from the Eden Valley further south.
57% Marsanne, 30% Roussanne and 13% Viognier.
A proportion of the Marsanne and all of the Viognier – was fermented in French oak, of which 10% was new. The remaining Marsanne and all of the Roussanne were tank fermented and then the two elements were blended about 6 months later.
Drink now and over the next 2 years.
John Duval was for many years Penfolds senior winemaker and oversaw the production of the mighty Grange. Since 2003 John has worked on his own range of wines – remaining true to his core roots in the Barossa Valley. The Plexus Rhône white blend was launched on 2010 – being a combination of Marsanne and Roussanne, supplemented with a judicious dollop of Viognier from the cooler Eden Valley hills.
Works a treat with pork ribs and a sticky BBQ style sauce, or slow cooked pork belly with a bell pepper and orange sauce.
