Tasting Notes

A medium-bodied sparkling red wine made from Shiraz. Mixed, fresh dark berries on the palate with just the right touch of bubbles and tannin. Drinks well today and has just a bit of sweetness to enjoy as a before dinner drink. You can give it just a light chill before opening.

Staff Pick Notes

If you like bubbles, if you like to experience a new kind of sparkling wine made using the traditional method in Champagne, then you have to stop and consider to try The Chook Sparkling Shiraz.

Imagine a Champagne with a garnet color, imagine a Champagne with Blackberry and Red-berry flavors, and imagine having this sparkling wine slightly chilled. Awesome versatility when it comes to pairing, I mean, The Chook Sparkling Shiraz goes well with pretty much everything.
