Sorby Adams Morticia Sparkling Shiraz NV


Sparkling Shiraz is a great drink but sadly it gets pigeonholed as a "Christmas drink". Park that idea and reap the reward when you pop that top off this on any of the other 364 days of the year.

Woodstock Old Fortified Tawny Style NV


Winter is fortified season. As part of a new tasting experience at the Woodstock cellar door, three fortifieds and a Botrytis have been matched with Haigh's Chocolates. A dark chocolate almond cluster is the weapon of choice with this Old Fortified Tawny Style.

Woodstock Muscat NV


Dangerously smooth, I received this Muscat from Woodstock as part of their celebration of International Chocolate Day. Three fortifieds and a Botrytis have been matched with Haigh's Chocolates for a very different cellar door tasting.

Named in honour of Norman and Hurtle Walker, Nick Walker's respective father and grandfather who spent over 100 years in the wine industry., the Romalo cellars were where they honed their craft. Wrap your lips around this tasty Sparkling Shiraz.

Howard Park Petit Jeté NV


Really enjoyable, this is a serious looking fizz that is not so serious on the hip pocket. Nicely done from the crew at Howard Park.

Pommery Brut Royal Champagne NV


There's something about Champagne that just makes you feel a little bit fancy. This Pommery impressed deluxe. A blend of forty crus, it sees 36 months in bottle before release.

Thomson & Scott Noughty Organic Sparkling Chardonnay NV

Throw it in a flute and there’s a good chance your friends wouldn’t know it's alcohol-free except the dancing won’t get worse the more you have… A fabulous alternative when seeking a non-alcoholic fizz.

Golden Grove Estate Marnita Muscat NV

Soak your dried fruit in this overnight and then spoon over ice cream. There is a Christmas hack. Or just sip slow. A fab non-vintage Muscat made from Golden Grove Estate's 65-year-old vines - the oldest and the original vines planted on the estate.

Yelland and Papps Old Vine Grenache NV


This wine grows on you - big time. The marriage of three vintages (2018, 2019, 2021) from the same vineyard, it's a bit like stepping onto a cable bridge. Initially a little shaky, with some forward momentum you can't help but embrace the vista and natural beauty that surrounds you.

Jester Hill Shiraz Roussanne NV


An interesting blend that brings together portions of Shiraz from 2018 & 2019 and a splash of Roussanne (2019).

Brockenchack Great Scott Sparkling Shiraz NV


Drink more Sparkling Shiraz. It is such a versatile style of wine - pre-dinner, with a meal, dessert or on its own. Spring evenings poolside is where I'm at.

Blue Pyrenees Sparkling Shiraz NV


Sparkling Shiraz is SO Australian but the shame is that it is pigeon holed as a Christmas Day drink. Surely we can do better than 1 out of 365? Check out this great value beauty and perhaps your afternoon drinks with friends may change course.
