Buy of the Week AU

Epsilon Shiraz 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $20

This is astounding value from a boutique producer. The label is fairly new but the owners are fifth-generation Barossa grapegrowers. Plummy fruit-driven aromas, coupled with subtle spices and smoky oak, the palate deep, rich and full-bodied, with drive and power. (Screwcap)
