Buy Of The Week AU

Pitchfork Cabernet Merlot, Margaret River 2013 AUD$16

Deep red-purple colour, raspberry and crushed herb aromas, a hint of tomato leaf. It’s medium-bodied and straightforward, with bright varietal fruit and finishing with a decisive, typical cabernet grip. Remarkable value. (Screw cap; 14.5 per cent alcohol.)
