89pointsJohn Duval Wines 2016 Plexus White (Barossa)

John Duval's Rhône-style blend is mostly Marsanne and Roussanne, with just 8% Viognier. It shows all the texture and weight you'd expect from these varieties and from being aged for six months in French oak. Radiant gold in color, it starts off reductively, with some kerosine-like aromas, but after some time in the glass it opens to reveal notes of red apple skin, stone fruit, wet hay, wool and a touch of honey and white floral notes. The palate is highly textural, but the fruit gets a little lost. The finish is short and spicy. Christina Pickard
