Reviews and Ratings

The 2009 vintage of Plexus is a robust blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre grapes. Aromas of blackberry, mulberry, spice and smoke. This wine was aged for 15 months in French oak barrels. John Duval was formerly the winemaker at Penfolds, and that elegant pedigree shows here now in his own line of wines. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
