John Duval Annexus Grenache 2017
The inspiration from the Barossa’s best old vine Grenache vineyards created Annexus, an addition to our Plexus blend. It is a small selection from our best old low yielding, Grenache Vineyards.
The growing season was characterised by plentiful early rains and then record rainfall for September of 162 mm, welcome relief after a few lean years. Summer saw very few extreme heat days, with temperatures being below the long-term average. These conditions produced a later start to vintage, and flavour coming in at lower Baume. This is a vintage of fruit brightness, lovely supporting acidity and softer tannins
In the glass, this wine is vibrant ruby red. On the nose, you have savoury herb and spicy fruit aromatics opening to reveal bright red cherry and rose. Fine boned in structure, with fresh raspberry and purity of red fruits, minerality finishing with fine dusty tannins.
