Buy of the Week AU

Schild Estate Grenache Mourvedre Shiraz 2015, Barossa Valley, AUD $18

A highly appealing drink-now red at an astonishing price. The aromas remind of chocolate, vanilla and cocoa powder, with dried herbs and plum contributing. Medium to full-body, sweet fruit, and the tannins are ample but balanced, without astringency. Ready to enjoy. (Screwcap)
