Wine of the Week AU

Geoff Hardy Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz 2016, McLaren Vale, AUD $22

This well-priced shiraz has a deep, bold colour and a bouquet of both red and dark fruits, a hint of smoky oak, then a rich, fleshy palate with balanced soft tannins. It has fruit-sweetness in the mid-palate and precision ripeness. Very approachable already. (Screwcap)
