TASTING NOTE

 

Crimson purple-red with an array of red and black berry aromatics, wild berries and cassis. Generous on the palate, the Plexus has a soft texture and fine tannins. Flavours of blackberry and dark cherry finish with hints of asian spice and Christmas cake.

Shiraz was sourced from old vineyards in the Krondorf and Marananga regions. Grenache from old bush vines 50-60 years old from Stockwell and Krondorf regions. Mourvèdre from old bush vines, the oldest over 100 years old, from the Light Pass and Krondorf regions.

Fermentation with submerged cap in both traditional old open and small stainless steel fermenters. 100% barrel matured for 15 months, with just 10% new fine grain French oak hogsheads (300 litre barrels): 90% three to six year old barrels. Some Shiraz finished fermentation in new French oak.
