Black Bubbles Sparkling Shiraz

Tasting Note

Deep garnet in colour with vibrant magenta bubbles. Aromas of concentrated blackcurrant with hints of liquorice, spice and dark cherries. Creamy bubbles and luscious sweetness envelop the plump blackberry mid-palate, which is enhanced with hints of savoury development. The long sweet fruit finish is balanced with fine tannin and acidity.

"Lovely sparkling smelling of spices and plums with a zippy freshness on the palate balanced with lovely lifted blue fruit and spices. 4 stars, Top in Category."

Ralph Kyte-Powell
The Age Epicure

"Sparkling shiraz is an Australian icon. Black Bubbles sums up the idea beautifully with dense colour, ripe berry and chocolatey qualities, mellow flavours, well-handled sweetness, a firm backbone of fine tannins and a long aftertaste."

Sparkling Tasting
Winestate Magazine

A bright commercial style with a pleasant mix of blueberry, blackberry, rhubarb and licorice characters and a firm tannin spine.
