Bleasdale Sparkling Shiraz NV (Langhorne Creek, South Australia) "...ripe plum, chocolate, spice..."
"Bleasdale Sparkling Shiraz is the perennial crowd-pleaser. Offering lashings of ripe plummy fruit, spice, chocolate and cedar. The wine displays aged complexity without foregoing freshness. Possibly the greatest match for Christmas Turkey yet discovered." - 92 Points, Tyson Stelzer
"Deep red colour with the last vestiges of purple tint. Ripe plummy bouquet, clean and fresh, and not shrill or simplistic. A tinge of spice, earth and faint chocolate. The palate is full, and round, soft and smooth, balanced and clean on the finish with a touch of cleansing tannin. There's plenty of sweetness mid-palate, then a clean, drying finish. Cleverly balanced wine. This would have wide appeal." - 90 Points, Huon Hooke
