This Australian sparkler is composed entirely of shiraz. The fruit was sourced from 14-year-old vines. Black raspberry aromas lead a huge nose that is fruity and floral. If the nose of a wine could be compared to an invitation, this one is welcoming you to a party that is fun and a bit loud. The palate is studded with vibrant black fruit flavors; blackberry and raspberry are most prominent. Molasses, anise, black cherry, and a mélange of spices are all present in the above average finish. The bottom line here is that the Paringa Sparkling Shiraz is a fun and delicious wine. Pair it with rich chocolate desserts, a burger, or drink it by itself. Each alternative will work.
