"Lots of licorice and tea leaf with meat and blackberry aromas. Full body, soft and lightly velvety sparkling red wine. Flavorful finish. Drink now."

" (made from a blend of fruit from McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek) Vivid ruby, with a frothy mousse. Bright raspberry and cherry on the nose and palate, with subtle white pepper and spice notes adding vibrancy. Nervy and less sweet than most versions of this genre, with good back-end lift and tangy bite. Finishes with good clarity and a strong echo of fresh red berries. -"
"This non vintage wine sparkles to the tune of a well-balanced blend; predominantly three-year-old Shiraz, aged in old French oak barrels showing wonderful smooth integrated fruit and a rich weighty texture across the palate. This is blended with a touch of younger vintage Shiraz bringing ripe juicy fruit characters to the finished product. The fruit is sourced from premium Shiraz growing regions including McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek with the result being a rich, luscious Sparkling Shiraz that is well balanced and destined to compliment pork and turkey or any occasion to celebrate!!" ~ Winery notes
