Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Premium Langhorne Creek Shiraz grapes were selected and blended to produce this richly flavoured Sparkling Shiraz. Sweet berry fruit flavors and liquoring have combined to produce a great colour and depth of flavor. Served while chilled.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid ruby. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by spices and flowers, picking up a peppery quality with air. Nervy, focused and spicy, offering bright red berry and cherry skin flavors and a touch of candied rose. The finish is nicely brisk and focused, with a peppery note adding cut to the sweet red fruit. I'd serve this at the end of a meal, with cheeses. "

I LOVE this sparkling red as does my friends. This is not easy to find on the East Coast at a relatively decent price so I was very excited to learn that wine.com had it in stock. I will be ordering more soon!

Haven't opened one yet but it has long been a favorite of mine when I lived just up the road (from the winery) a bit for most of my life. I just love red sparkling Shiraz (and Cabernet when it is available) as long as it is made like a quality red and not too sweet.
