Infiniti Sparkling Shiraz 1999

Deep ruby red with attractive white frothy head - excellent entrance with well-balanced mouth feel of CO2 richness of the Shiraz fruit and elegant balance of sugar and acid. Powerful intensity and elegant in mouth aromas of pepper cassis and nuts. Persistent clean aftertaste. In the mood for something different to compliment your favourite meat dish or to celebrate a special moment. The secret ... chill very well and it will open up in your glass.
