    May 16, 2015 - What a wine!
    Drunk with Peking duck.

    Colour - vibrant ruby red with hints of purple.

    Nose - sweet red berries with hints of earthy spice.

    Palate - red fruit and drying tannins. Dry earthy dusty.

    This is exactly what a sparkling red should taste like - I'm in love.

    Go out and buy this wine.

    December 24, 2013 - Wow, definitely one of the best Sparkling Shirazes I have tasted.
    Big, concentrated nose of dark berries, supported by oak. Palate leads on from the nose as expected. Just a slight touch of sweetness.
