Chapel Hill The Parson Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2016, McLaren Vale, AUD $16

Playful and vibrant, this is an affordable wine with character. Being a blend of three varieties there is excellent evenness on the palate. There’s also an appealing rusticity, in the form of a savoury/meaty undercurrent, presumably coming from the mourvèdre. It is great to find affordable wine such as this with personality and intensity. (Screwcap)
