The Black Chook Sparkling Shiraz
For some people, the Christmas table just isn't complete without a good Aussie Sparkling red. This is a very generously flavoured Sparkling Shiraz that offers terrific value. Excellent creamy purple mousse showing very good hold. Exceptionally fine bead showing excellent persistence with a dark crimson red base wine colour. The nose displays good lift with top notes of ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark plum followed by some confectionary notes. Rich, full bodied and boasting a creamy texture the palate delivers luscious fruit flavours of ripe blackberry, dark plum, liquorice and dark chocolate. Excellent concentration. Clean finish with long blackberry, liquorice and dark chocolate aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
