Buy of the Week AU

Cookoothama Darlington Point Shiraz 2015, Riverina & King Valley, AUD $15

This has already won three gold medals and a trophy, an impressive result for a modestly priced red. The colour is deep, young and bold, the aromas are fresh and fruit-driven: raspberry, red cherry and mint. Medium-bodied, with ample, well-balanced tannins. Oak takes a back seat. (Screwcap)
