WINE: PETERSON HOUSE Sparkling Cabernet Sauvignon

Type: Sparkling Red
Origin: Australia
Approx Cost: $35

My mother took a trip up to the Hunter Valley recently and checked out some of the wineries around there. I was actually hanging out for something from Tyrrell’s but she didn’t get around that way. Instead, an interesting sparkling cab sav was collected from Peterson House.

Light and purple in colour, the wine pours with an impressive mousse but a bead that disappears quickly. Aroma of chocolate and forest fruits. Pleasant, mellow tastes of cherry, okay and sweet, juicy berries. Sharp finish, but disappears quickly.

Good wine, definitely different to the norm, but value is a little doubtful.

I prefer the Peterson House Merlot but each to their own
