Wine of the Week AU

Fox Creek Postmaster GSM Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2015, McLaren Vale, $27

An excellent wine and a very affordable price. Fresh raspberry, blackberry, fruit pastille aromas with a gentle kiss of oak; the palate has more spice and extra complexity with a trace of chocolate. There is richness, concentration and length, with fine tannins in balance. (Screwcap)
