Buy of the Week AU
D’Arenberg The Custodian Grenache 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $18
The colour is deep and youthful; the bouquet is far from simple fruit, but incorporates ironstone mineral and licorice notes. It’s medium to full-bodied, bold, bright, youthful and quite firm in structure, with solid tannins. Lots of character, if not elegance, and very good value. (Screwcap)
