John Duval, Plexus MRV
Our aim with Plexus Roussanne Marsanne Viognier (RMV) is to promote a vibrant expression of fruit aromas from the interaction of the three varieties; and on the palate, to build structure and texture, rather than just acid crispness.
Roussanne 57%, Marsanne 31% Viognier 12% Roussanne was sourced from the Kalimna sub-region, Marsanne from the
Marananga sub-region, and Viognier from Eden Valley.
Gentle pressings were combined with free run juice and cold settled. Fermentation commenced in stainless steel but some of the Marsanne and Viognier finished fermentation in and was aged in puncheon until bottling in early October. The remaining Marsanne and the Roussanne was aged on lees in tank until bottling, to enhance the structure and texture of the wine. 20% of the total blend was aged in fine-grain French oak for a total of 7
NOSE: Ripe nectarine, peach and pear with hints of ginger spice and quince blossom.
PALATE: Pristine layers of peach, nectarine and pear with hints of mandarin and subtle baking spice.
