An Australian icon made with museum vintages dating back to the 60's. This is the history of Australian wine in a bottle.

We handcraft the Sparkling Red using a unique blend of aged Australian reds from the past fifty years. The result is a brooding, opulent wine with heady aromas of leather, spice, cedar, and a smooth, velvety finish.

Here's what critics have to say about the JOSEPH Sparkling Red:

Sells out very quickly after release...One of Australia's treasures.” - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion

The depth and complexity on parade here reflect all of  the nuanced history of  its grand recipe spanning six decades of components. The result utterly transcends any list of descriptors that could possibly be conceived, laced together with super fine tannins and generous yet perfectly judged dosage. An inimitable benchmark that everyone must experience." - Tyson Stelzer, The Australian Sparkling Report

My forever Xmas wine… The Primo Estate Joseph Sparkling Red is the genre of red fizz that we should be celebrating, too. It’s a master stock of a wine, that couples the punch and power of young McLaren Vale Cabernet, Merlot and Shiraz with a treasure-trove solera of old Aussie wine things.” - Andrew Graham, The Australian Wine Review

Enjoy a FREE bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and FREE shipping with every straight or mixed dozen of Primo Estate or JOSEPH products.

Just opened a 2001 Joseph sparkling Shiraz tonight. What a delight! We were surprised by the fact it was still drinkable.... Much less outstanding. It accompanied a pork roast. I purchased the wine in Sydney in 2004 or so. Probably from David Jones or Ultima wines. Thank you for a delightful bottle.

My partner and I were in Melb for a break and had dinner at Grossi Florentino and choose this wine on a hunch and my god was it great...We loved it and had to hold off and getting a 2nd and slowed down on drinking it.

we found a bottle after this is a great bottle shop in St kilda and have now just ordered 6. Can't wait to crack one open again.

This is to my mind (palate) the best sparkling red currently on the market. Dark fruits, great complexity with layer upon layer of flavours - masterfully created. I recommend this to my clients as the one to buy and without fail they have been blown away!

The Joseph is without doubt in my view the best sparkling red wineproduced in Australia. It is highly prized by my family for special occasions. The wine has incredible depth and is amazingly smooth with delicious flavours across the full palate

I sadly rate this wine full marks, so now the demand will be greater and I may have trouble getting my allocation. However Joe has earned the excellent rating for an iconic Australian wine

Absolutely hands down the best sparkling red available, only problem is it sells too quick, but then again that's why it's the best. Cheers

JOSEPH Sparkling Red? Best sparkling red in the country by a fair margin.

It has been said before and I will say it again. The Joseph sparkling red is the best tasting red bubbles in Australia, maybe even the world? Yes I am willing to declare it best in the world! Maybe it is the old port barrels that add that certain something? Or the time of year it is released? Our Christmas in summer when everything tastes so good. Our maybe it is the best because, well because it just is!

An Australian icon that never disappoints. Huge flavour input from a long lineage of aged shiraz.

Hands down the best sparkling Shiraz made. Depth and complexity that others are not able to attain. A festive tradition and one of the unique wines of Australia up there with aged Hunter Semillion or Eden Valley Riesling as one of the great wines of Australia.

This sparkling red is an essential component of every significant celebratory event in our household. It's so seductive with its rich plush opulence that any restraint where wine in the glass is concerned is an exercise in futility. There are several other excellent sparkling shiraz made in Australia but Joseph is and remains this style's benchmark.
