John Duval Wines Annexus Grenache 2016
From the Winemaker:
The inspiration from the Barossa’s best old vine Grenache vineyards created Annexus, an addition to our Plexus blend. Annexus is a small unique blend selected from our best old low yielding Grenache vineyards, made only in the best years.
Colour: Bright purple-red.
Nose: Lifted red fruit aromatics, a hint of roses, anise adn savoury spices.
Palate: Medium bodies with an array of vibrant cranberry and raspberry fruit carrying impressive purity and flavour intensity. The palate is supported by a core of fresh acidity and shaped by seamless, fine tannins.
Varieties: Annexus Grenache was sourced from two very old low yielding Barossa Vineyards, one ancestor vineyard over 150 years old and the other old vines from the Northern Barossa Valley.
Winemaking: Fermentation in small open top fermenters incorporating a small amount of whole bunches.
Oak Maturation: 100% barrel maturated for 12 months, in older French oak hogsheads (300 litre barrels).
