Sparkling Shiraz, or as sparkling red wines used to be known in Australia - Sparkling Burgundies, may not be cool but are gaining in popularity and have a long tradition in Australia.
We Aussies know that their delicacy is not highly thought of in other countries but bring your nose to a glass full of the crimson, fizzy liquid and you get the aromas of toasty new oak and blackcurrants, blackberries, chocolate, cherries, strawberries and more.
Try it. A Sparkling Shiraz will be as rich and velvety as anything you’ve ever put in your mouth.
Powerful fruit, dry yet seeming sweet, some acid and tannin on the finish, it’s heavy in flavor yet lightened by a profusion of fine bubbles. Fantastic!
Sometimes known as Sparkling Syrah in the US.
