wolf-blass-red-label-shiraz-2016Wolf Blass Red Label Shiraz 2016, South Australia, AUD $14

This is a baby wine but it’s been superbly designed to drink well young. Pungent roast meat, salami, pepper and spices to sniff. It’s light-bodied and soft textured, with great balance and immediate drinkability. A very modern young red. (Screwcap)
