Visually gorgeous, with bubbles foaming up a beautiful pink color over the dark red-black core of the wine.
In Australia when you visit a friend’s home the first wine out of the fridge is a sparkling red and I mean a real red wine with great flavor and texture but also with bubbles, served chilled.
Bliss Sparkling Shiraz uses the time honored method of ageing quality Shiraz in wood for many years prior to blending and bottle fermentation.
The result is softness, depth and complex flavors that are impossible to duplicate in young wines.
Bliss Sparkling Shiraz ensures that this very Australian style wine, nurtured by generations of winemakers is never lost.
Serious sparkling reds take a lot more work and time to make than still red wines, and they're always in short supply, usually made in lots of less than 500 cases. Our first batch of Bliss was harvested in 2013 and released as a wine in 2018.
The result however, justifies the cost and work and time to make them the right way using the right grapes because the result is a fun, delicious, food-friendly wine made with the Méthode Champenoise process, described here.
