SRP of $40 with an average price of $36 on Wine-Searcher, but wefound it for just $16.67 a bottle! (We have previously splurged on this one at what we thought was a great price of $30 per bottle as well.)
From the bottle:
"Four generations of my family have been vignerons in South Australia. Over the last three decades in the Barossa Valley I was given the opportunity to make Australia's most famous wine. The inspiration of the Barossa's best old vine, low yielding, Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre vineyards, created Plexus, combining elements into a coherent structure. Ancient, illustrious vineyards combined with meticulous, traditional winemaking, and fifteen months in the best French oak will ensure the age worthiness of this celebrated blend.
The 2009 John Duval Wines Plexus begins with a really wonderful bouquet of blackberry, plum, spice and everything nice. In addition to the thick fruit aromas there's also a bit of black tea and vanilla. Tasting this full-bodied wine reveals tons of rich and savory dark fruit with a super smooth, silky and even an almost creamy texture. The spice notes from the nose continue all the way through the savory finish of this wonderfully balanced wine. Really excellent now and it should only get better with more time in the bottle!
It's not often we give a wine a 10 taste rating, but that's just what we have here today. However, if not for this special deal this wine wouldn't qualify for a Bulk Buy, heck it wouldn't even be close to under $20.
