Wine Review: This sparkling Shiraz is a deep dark purple color. It opens with a bramble and black cherry-cola bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The flavor profile is blend of raspberry, black cherry-cola, and black pepper. We also detected some hints of mocha as well. This sparkler will appeal to younger generation. It would be perfect, served chilled at the beach. - Karen and Stuart

Winemaker Notes: A deep mauve in color with a crimson hue. The nose is complex and earthy: rich leather, prunes, caramelized dates, coffee, black currant, meaty, wine gums and some toasty brown spice. These aromas are supported on the palate by red berries, plums and chocolate. The ripe fruits and chocolate mingle on the creamy palate. Saucy, savory characters add to the complexity with balanced tannins and sweetness to help round off the finish.
