Buy of the Week AU

BackVintage Block 8 Shiraz 2016, McLaren Vale, AUD $13

The depth of flavour in this wine is very impressive at such a paltry price. The aromas are of dark plum and blackberry laced with spices including pepper, and a hint of bitumen. It’s medium-bodied and superbly balanced, with ample but neatly trimmed tannins. No hurry to drink it. (Screwcap)
