Bleasdale Sparkling Shiraz Nv

This wine shot into our list last year and it will make it every year if the standard of pruney, plummy fruit is as high as this. There is a level of complexity of flavour here that is remarkable for the money. It shone in a very large line-up of wines that simply couldn’t match its verve and dashing style. Seppelts first-timers (above) should dip a toe in this wine whenever they feel ready to graduate to a higher plane. It’s a hell of a lot more wine for an extra fifty cents! Taste 2008 Mathew Jukes and Tyson Stelzer
 
Lifted plummy blackcurrant fruit with tonnes of spice and leather. Ray Jordan, The West Australian
 
Classic old fashioned Mississippi mudcake flavours abound in this soulful, moody darkness from the Larncrk flats. But there are also faint hints of the ethereal minty eucalypt which makes it very Australian. It's sweetish, but not cloying, with fi ne old reedy, fennel-like tannins adding a little acrid edge to the finish. It’s like a leathery old sock. You could drink it with chevre, or snaky delta blues. 93 points; Philip White, Top 20 Sparkling Wines

Rich cranberry and tar notes on the nose. It’s generous in the mouth with a rounded berry fruit and a velvety texture. Neil Hadley
 
Lovely exuberant spicy aromatics. Lovely liquorice aniseed chocolate red fruit. It was a sweeter lighter style. I really liked it in the context of food. Great nose. It was an interesting wine style. Paul White
 
This wine was my preferred wine of the group. Rich fruit. Complex. Developed rich palate. Persistent mousse. Sugar in balance. John Ellis
 
Round dry flavourful with CO2 that’s not too dominant and a red fruity finish. A slight varnish like note in the wine, perhaps of oak, diminishes the fruitiness. This nonetheless could make me like sparkling Shiraz! Mary Ewing-Mulligan
