Buy of the Week AU

Blackstone Paddock The Player Shiraz 2015, Barossa Valley, AUD $13

Very good deep red-purple colour, and a bouquet rich in black plum and vanilla aromas. It’s medium-full bodied and well structured with abundant firm tannins. The finish has some alcohol warmth and a little astringency to close. Plenty of wine for your thirteen bucks. (Screwcap)
