Buy of the Week AU

Woodlands Cabernet Franc Merlot 2016, Margaret River, AUD $27

This elegant medium-bodied red is approximately half of each variety, and is scented with violet, raspberry and blueberry aromas, while the palate is tight and tense, with fine texture and mild tannins. It drinks well young, especially with lighter meats and poultry. (Screwcap)
