Buy of the Week AU

Brave Souls The Able Seaman Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $28

Brave Souls is a new brand with a story – about a historic shipwreck. Label art by Bruce Goold is a bonus. The bouquet is spicy, foresty and gently stemmy, and there’s a touch of licorice on the finish. Plenty of depth and drive, full body and soft tannins. Great value to drink or cellar. (Screwcap)
