Wine of the Week AU

Blue Pyrenees Estate Red Blend 2013, Pyrenees, AUD $42

This impressive blend of cabernet, merlot, shiraz and malbec is the estate’s signature wine. The colour is bright and youthful; the bouquet is rich in black fruits with a lick of mint and the tannins are ample and balanced, contributing to an opulent, fleshy texture. Full-bodied and generous, it will age superbly. (Screwcap)
