5 Stars for JOSEPH Sparkling Red in The Age
JOSEPH Sparkling Red is the perfect pairing for roast turkey with cranberries or chicken with chestnut stuffing this Christmas according to The Age's Epicure Uncorked, Ralph Kyte-Powell. In this weekend's five star review Ralph says:
'Australia's most distinctive sparkling red? Based on aged red wines with an annual contribution of younger Primo Estate material it's complex with leathery notes, plum, berry fruit, hints of spice and old oak. Dry for its kind, it is soft and creaming, subtly flavoured, long and complete. Five stars'
The Age's 'Presents for Palates' feature by Jeni Port recommends the JOSEPH Sparkling Red as a Christmas gift for its 'A massively complex, engaging sparkling from McLaren Vale; old wine base material is the secret, chocolate, aniseed, allspice, blackberry and fruit cake'
