Buy of the Week AU

Maxwell Little Demon Shiraz Grenache 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $18

This deep red-purple coloured wine smells of dark berries and spices, with a trace of meatiness. It’s medium to full-bodied and firm, with a touch of elegance, tightly-packed density and good persistence. Good to drink now and could be cellared. (Screwcap)
