Steller's Jay 2018 Sparkling Shiraz
This Sparkling Shiraz first catches your eye with its deep violet colour and persistent magenta mousse. Fresh black cherry aromas are complemented by spice, picking up white pepper qualities with exposure in the glass. Black currant and blackberry dance on the palate, with a peppery note balancing the fruit. Medium- sized bubbles give way to some soft tannins and delicious mid-palate sweetness.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve slightly chilled as a toast to accompany a celebration or special occasion. Try at brunch, and as an appetizer with cured meats and rich cheeses. Holiday table fare such as roast turkey and duck will have their flavours brightened by the natural acidity and effervescent bubbles of this sparkling wine.

Rich, dark berry flavours, distinctive and bubbly all at the same time! Perfect for New Year’s Eve and to celebrate special moments all year around!

We loved this wine. It is very bubbly, rich tasting and delicious. We had it with steak and as a pre dinner drink. It was best with the steak.
