Who ever thought a red could tickle?! This wine maintains its red character, even though it sparkles. It possesses the comfortable body of a still Shiraz and its slight fruitiness makes the bubbly a welcome alternative to your typical champagne/sparkling wine. We loved how it started titillating in one spot with one flavor and then moved to a new spot exposing yet another flavor, still allowing enjoyment of each. We recommend this wholeheartedly.
