  Wine Information:
When the Grateful Palate first started selling wine here in the states, buyers rejected the idea of Sparkling Shiraz with skepticism but from the very beginning, when placed in retail accounts, it sold. At first perhaps on curiosity value, but when consumers tried it, they liked it. We began to bring in versions from six or seven of our wineries as sales grew but we noticed there were no value-priced versions in our portfolio or the general market.  Enter David Hickinbotham and this wine.  In 2004 David has committed a substantial portion of the Paringa Shiraz harvest to this ultra-value Sparkling Shiraz.  The juice is Paringa Shiraz with bubbles and a dosage.  Itís dark, rich, and juicy - full of fruit flavor and bubbles.  It is gorgeous to look at and surprisingly complex and stunning to drink.

Color: Saturated deep magenta red.
Bouquet:  Crisp, clean, raspberry and blueberry fruits.
Palate:  Velvety, creamy tannins, persistent length of palate and delightful full flavored finish.
