Buy of the Week AU

Mister Fox Shiraz 2016, Victoria, AUD $15

The colour is good: deep red with a purple tint, while the bouquet has appealing plum, chocolate and faintly peppery aromas. It’s light to medium-bodied, with a sinewy, slightly edgy texture, good intensity and balance. A quite stylish wine and excellent value at the price. From Crush Fine Wines. (Screwcap)
