Wine Of The Week AU
Plan B! Shiraz Tempranillo, Frankland River 2013, AUD $20
Terrific value for money. The colour is rich, deep red/purple; the bouquet appealingly shirazzy with ironstone, black pepper and mixed spice aromas; the palate medium to full-bodied, smooth and harmonious. It blends power, potential and drinkability. (14.8 per cent alcohol; screw cap)
