Sometimes there’s just a little bit of hedonism and joy opening a bottle of Sparkling red without a festive occasion to celebrate.
Shingleback, Black Bubbles, Sparkling Shiraz, McLaren Vale, NV
Blue fruit, mulberry and a little blackcurrant. The mouth feel and texture of the mousse show an insight into a desire for quality, not just as a curio. Acidity keeps things fresh while there’s a silky glycerol finish that belies the alcohol content an underlying bluestone gravelly quality gives a ruggedness to the smooth charm. Serve slightly chilled with char siu pork or a bbq sauce bacon sandwich or roast turkey/ham or go the other end of the meal to serve with a rich chocolate dessert.
