2012 John Duval “Plexus” White Blend

91This is a floral treat from John Duval, the former Chief Winemaker at Penfolds. A bowl of aromatic white flowers blow up from the glass, followed by poached pear. The palate is just as floral. Magnolias and citrus blossoms, with poached pears, make up the initial flavors on the palate. Toast and lime foam show on the mid-palate, and all the flavors linger in harmony on the finish. Drink with fresh trout. Highly Recommended. 91.
