Ranked #16 of 27 2010 Shiraz Grenache Mourvèdre from Barossa Valley
Very light yellow colour. Clean, fresh aromas of yeast lees and faintly herbal fruit. Rich flavour in a delicate, light to medium-bodied style, soft but tidy and dry to close. Long finish too. Nice wine and has room to grow.
Drink: 2012 to 2014
95 Points Robert Parker
Medium to deep garnet in color, the 2010 Plexus is starting to morph into a meaty, savory nose with core of kirsch and blueberry preserves, plus potpourri and a touch of cranberry sauce. The palate has great structure, still—all rounded and plush—with maturing, savory fruit leading to a very long finish.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Plexus Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre is a blend of Shiraz 52%, Grenache 29% and Mourvedre 19%. This wine opens with notes of blackberry preserves, blueberry compote and warm black plums over suggestions of vanilla, cinnamon toast, anise, espresso and mandarin peel. Full-bodied and generously fruited with warm black berry and spice flavors plus a touch of oak, it has a good backbone of medium to firm finely-grained tannins and just enough acid to balance through the long finish. It’s delicious now but should improve with 2-3 years in bottle and drink well to 2022+.

94 Points James Halliday
Bright colour; a beautifully generous, plump and fleshy blend, with a backbone of Proven?al garrigue providing light to the masses of sweet red and black fruits shade; the trailing spice and purity of fruit is seamless and very long. Drink to 2018.
