Buy of the Week AU

Pensilva Shiraz 2017, McLaren Vale, AUD $16 (range $12-$20)

The colour is deep, bright red with a purple tinge; the aromas recall dark plum, char-oak and a touch of spice. It’s rich and rounded, with a sweet-fruit middle, some chocolate and blackberry flavours chiming in, and smooth, soft tannins. The finish is long and harmonious. Outstanding value, especially when on promotion. (Screwcap)
