Jack Barry Sparkling Shiraz

Ignite your taste buds with the bold and festive notes of our Jack Barry Sparkling Shiraz. Its full of hearty flavours and complements slow-cooked stews and roasted meats perfectly.
"Imagine this: crackling fireplace, plush lambswool blanket, a delightful spread of local artisanal cheeses, and quality crackers. Add in a touch of board games, and you've got the perfect winter escape right in your living room. Gather your pals, partners, or family and treat yourselves to a cozy indoor getaway." - Matthew Barry
Answer the call of comfort with our rich and velvety The Calling 2017 Shiraz. Its deep berry flavours and subtle spice make it an ideal companion for a cozy night in. Pair it with a classic beef bourguignon or a rustic shepherd's pie to elevate your winter gatherings.
Unwind with the elegance of our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon - a true winter special. Its refined tannins and layers of dark fruit flavours beautifully contrast with the richness of slow-cooked lamb shanks or a hearty mushroom risotto.
"Gone are the days of "Cassis" and "Cigar-box"; now, imagine the fusion of new leather, comforting coffee, and rich chocolate mingling with deep, dark fruits. Across seas, it's the "Fruits of the Forest"—a playful dance of blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and currants." - Matthew Barry
The hidden gem of winter wine pairings - this aromatic red boasts flavours of dark fruits and a touch of smokiness that pair wonderfully with a comforting plate of braised short ribs or a hearty lentil stew.
"Straight from the enchanting foothills of the Alps of northern Italy, this grape is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Imagine Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir joining forces - two wine powerhouses coming together to create something special." - Matthew Barry
For those seeking a white wine delight, our Estate Viognier shines with charm. Its notes of stone fruits and delicate florals create a harmony with creamy seafood pasta dishes or a zesty Thai curry.
"Once nearly extinct in 1960s France, this grape found its revival, especially in Australia. It's a star player, adding delicate violet nuances when co-fermented with Shiraz, and stands tall as an exquisitely aromatic white wine." - Matthew Barry
