Ive had this before but not a big fan after two different vintages. I don't know this last bottles vintage, but it has a fishy nose. I'll let it warm up and see what happens. There are much better sparkling Shiraz but hard to find.

Really interesting...fun. A tidal wave of crushed brambles if little else. Thanks Ethan!

Light and fruity but not sweet with light tannins. Great with a filet mignon. It kept its bubbles for a long time so you got fizz on each pour.

I'm a sucker for sparkling wine and Syrah so these wines have always been an easy sell for me. Very enjoyable, nothing that really blew my skirt up.

If you are feeling adventurous step away! Unfortunately I fell for the trap of trying this because who wouldn't want to try a sparkling red wine? Like carbonated juicy juice. Stay away!
