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.

Awesome versatility when it comes to pairing, I mean, The Chook Sparkling Shiraz goes well with pretty much everything.
