Seppelt Original Sparkling Shiraz

The Seppelt label has long been known for its high quality sparkling shiraz and the wines have offered excellent value for money in the past, particularly if you can still find a vintage version of this wine. The 2012 of which is much awarded…

This Non-vintage version still has all the hallmarks of a good Sparkling Shiraz although, I would not try to cellar it for long. It has a rich, ripe cherry berry  chocolate core of fruit. Soft, very fine bubbles make this fizz sing with vibrancy. Sometimes it is hard to remember that these wines do make excellent food wines as sparkling shiraz wines never seem to last long on the table once opened.

Quickie review «With the fine velvety bubble structure that this style of red fizz is famous for, the ripe cherry, berry fruit coated in chocolate is really hard to resist.»
