Fragrant light red

Angove Alternatus Tempranillo 2017, McLaren Vale, AUD $23

Light reds are all the rage at the moment and here is a delicious example. It has excellent texture and flavour, despite its light body. Intriguing aromatics of red fruit, sage and thyme. Easy drinking and satisfying. (Screwcap)
