Buy of the Week AU

d’Arenberg The Footbolt Shiraz 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $18

With its deep red/purple hue and similarly concentrated essency aroma of preserved plum, prune juice and char oak, this is brilliant value for money. It’s full-bodied and firm, with tannins that will certainly go better with food than without. A real mouthful. (Screwcap)
