Blackbilly Sparkling Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

You could not get any more Australian than Sparkling Shiraz so why don’t we up the ante and suggest you pair it with a steak on the barbie and sing the national anthem while you’re at it. But seriously, this is a style should get a load more recognition as it’s really good with dishes like duck and turkey. This smells like fruitcake with secondary aromas of chocolate and mocha, it’s nicely balanced between sweetness and acids with a rustic earthiness.

Winemaker's Notes

A mature brick red with modest purple tints. Ripe, rich, fruitcake type aromas with aged mocha and chocolate complexity. Good mousse and depth of flavour on the palate with well balanced sweetness and acidity. Hints of earthy notes and a light porty note add interest. Enjoy as an aperitif or try with Peking duck and roast turkey.

James Halliday says
A clear varietal shiraz base and perfectly judged dosage (sweetness) for wide appeal.

Lovely fruity quaffer, beautifully balanced and not too sweet, with quality fruit.
