Wine Review: This Australian white blend of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier is delicious. It is a pale white gold color. On the nose there is a brief bit of petrol, followed by delicious apple, beeswax, white peach and white florals. On the palate there is bright medium-plus acidity, a medium body, good balance, a wonderful very round and slightly creamy mouthfeel and nice complexity. I detected loads of flavors including pear, lemon curd, apple sauce, peach pit, minerality and mild oak. The persistent finish was dry and spicy. I would serve this impressive white blend with a roast lemon garlic chicken. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: The aim with Plexus MRV 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. Aromas of stone fruits, honeysuckle, citrus and ginger. The medium bodied is textured with balanced acidity. Flavors of nectarine, mandarin and spice.
