  • REVIEWS

    'Sparkling shiraz is Australia's very own fizz invention and is wickedly good with choc-based desserts or caramel tarts. Pop the cork and Let the berry-sweet kiss of dark fruits and Christmas spice delight your senses.'

    Tyson Stelzer, James Halliday Wine Companion 2018

    'A very likable wine, the lifted bouquet shows dark plum, raspberry coulis and floral characters with a hint of vanilla complexity. It is succulent and generous on the palate, and delivers excellent fruit richness backed by soft tannins. A fabulous sparkling shiraz, on the dry side, yet filled with sweet fruit flavours.'

    'There was a time when a whole host of sparkling reds appeared on the market but in recent years activity has slowed down. Great then to see this excellent drop crop up. NV RELEASE Yes! This is a great new introduction to the affordable sparkling red ranks. Bless its soul. It's clean, sweet, medium-bodied and fresh, its fruitiness dark and earthy. Neat price too.'
    Campbell Mattinson, The Big Red Wine Book

    'Very well made and extremely drinkable. I would certainly buy a bottle.'
