Sweet berry fruit flavours and liqueuring have combined to produce a wine of great colour and depth of flavour. A wine to be enjoyed with Christmas pudding, Duck dishes, Roast Meats, or simply by itself.
91 points - "Langhorne Creek tends to produce soft, plump red wines - which fits perfectly with the sparkling-red style. If you haven't cottoned on to the joys of this little beauty, it's time that you did. It's just so cute! It tastes of plums, chocolate and a little mint, and the flavours aren't wimpy either - they're fleshy, soft and rich and slip down a treat. This is becoming a benchmark for affordable but high-quality sparkling red." Click here to download presenter. The Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010
"This is Australia's finest value sparkling Shiraz and it delights in this appraisal by giving us a desperately sexy and curvaceous body to grab hold of - packed with glistening plum, blackberry, mocha and exotic spice. There is also a faint kiss of sweetness on the finish which tantalises the palate pulling you in for another mouthful." Matthew Jukes, matthewjukes.com
"Goodness,. A bouquet of cracked pepper and plum pudding slides into a rich, glossy palate that's swimming with black satsuma plum and cracked pepper, amid a sea of very fine tannins. ... this wine is as well constructed as ever, and still represents the best value in sparkling red in the country" 92 points Tyson Stelzer, WBM100
4 stars - "Sparkling Shiraz has a lovely back-to-the-future feel, and this Langhorne Creek example sums up the style. Rich aromas reminiscent of marzipan-iced Christmas cake introduce it, and there's a savoury ironstone/earthiness. The smooth foaming palate has measured sweetness, and fine, dry tannins give pleasant grip at the end." Click here for more. Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age - Epicure (Aus), 24 June 2008
One of the countryâ€™s finest and most consistent sparkling reds, and a fraction of the price of its rivals. Itâ€™s a beautiful balance of primary liquorice, pepper, black plum and cherry liqueur fruits with the aged complexity of leather, savoury spice and dark chocolate. 94 points Wine 100
