Buy of the Week AU

Paisley Wines Turntable Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $22.50

From a new producer comes a lovely red wine at a bargain price. The colour is deep red/purple; the bouquet has dried herb and savoury spice elements while the palate is rich, round and softly-textured. There’s a fine combination of fruit-sweetness and spice, finishing with some well-judged firmness. It’s very accessible. (Screwcap)
