Buy of the Week AU

Stanton & Killeen Sparkling Shiraz NV, Rutherglen, AUD $38

From a well-established family winery, this is a lovely big mouthful of sparkling red that cries out for hearty food. Full red/purple coloured, with a spice and dark berry aroma, it has a full-bodied, firm-tannin palate with a nice touch of sweetness in the middle before a long, drying finish. Hearty barbecue fare.
