Wine of the Week AU

John Duval Wines Plexus Marsanne Roussanne Viognier 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $30

Exotic and complex with notes of fresh lemon, roasted nuts, lanolin, lime zest and subtle oak. The palate is beautifully poised, with interlocking layers of classy fruit and savoury tones. Perfect expression and composure. It is a satisfying, high-quality wine that is an absolute steal at this price. Enjoy now or age in the short term for further complexity. (Screwcap)
