Review: ‘Tis (almost) the season for sparkling shiraz! This year, I think it’s time to bring this awesome style of wine back into flavour. The Patritti sparkling shiraz is straight up good stuff! This follows the trend of ‘a good winemaker with good grapes will always produce something good!’ This wine is prime summer day drinking at a BBQ, not too complex, just smooth, easy to drink and delicious flavours to round out a good wine! At $23, it punches well above its price and is sure to be a summer hit!
