Using a secret liqueuring recipe this richly flavoured, deep coloured sparkling Shiraz displays dark berry fruit aromas, sweet plum flavours, silky tannins and a rich, velvety smooth palate.
Wine Advocate 88 points - Bleasdale makes an excellent Non-Vintage Sparkling Shiraz called The Red Brute. The wine has lively effervescence, an attractive currant and blueberry scented nose, and a lively palate feel. It is an excellent value. Drink it with cheesecake at the end of a meal or as an aperitif. (Dec 2010)
