Jip Jip Rocks Sparkling Shiraz....$24.99
Australia -- 100% Shiraz
Predominantly 3 year old Shiraz aged in old French oak barrels,
allowing wonderful smooth integration of fruit and a rich texture across the palate. This is blended with a touch of younger vintage Shiraz to bring ripe juicy varietal fruit characters to the finished wine.
Pairings: enjoy as an aperitif, or with chocolate dessert, such as Chocolate Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice cream.

"Garnet black color. Interesting aromas of blackberry, charred pie crusts, anise, and black cassis preserve with a velvety, crisp, effervescent, dry medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long chocolate chunks, menthol, and fruit tisane finish. A fun, rich expression of bubbly Shiraz; a tasty Charcuterie companion."
