Peter Lehmann Masters Black Queen Shiraz Sparkling Wine 2011, Australia

Country: Australia

Colour / Style: Sparkling

Alternative selection for: Episode 8

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

Sparkling Shiraz is exactly that. A deep red, lightly spicy sparkler. It’s also an Australian institution. Peter Lehmann is a Barossa institution too and he makes one of the best. It’s a bit confusing at first – yes it’s chilled and red, and a bit sweet, and fruity but not tannic… but just go with it. Australians love to serve this at barbecues and it does work well with burgers and spicy wings. But I love it most with a really good curry.
