Wine of the Week AU
Atze’s Corner The Giant Durif 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $30
This is a very satisfying big red, with a dense, concentrated colour and a fragrant bouquet of rich dark fruits, dark chocolate and scented oak. Full-bodied, fleshy and concentrated, it’s structured with abundant ripe, supple tannins. Big and bold but also balanced. (Screwcap)
