Wine of the Week AU

Mount Majura Vineyard Little Dam Tempranillo 2016, Canberra District, AUD $45

Like all this maker’s wines, this is beautifully crafted and pristine, with a deep red/purple colour and an ultra-fresh, ripe bouquet of black cherry and blackberry – not minty like some other Majura reds. Medium to full body, soft tannins and delicious savoury flavours, balanced by light, drying tannins. The texture is seamless and elegant. (Screwcap)
