I finally opened up this bottle after having it in my fridge for several months. Sure, I have had a sparkling Shiraz before, but it never touched me like this one.

While this is sweeter than a normal Shiraz, it's meaty aspect is somewhat subdued, though it would still be the perfect wine for a barbecue. This wine might not interest the Shiraz purist, but for the average person, and some people with refined palates, this is still a nice baby to behold.
