Australia Day the 26th January is celebrated each year on the anniversary of the first fleet from Britain landing in Sydney Cove.
So what better way to celebrate the day than with some award winning sparkling wine from Australia.
Paulett Vineyards – Trillians Sparkling Red NV
This red sparkling wine won a Gold Medal in the Gastronomic Category at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards 2018.
Australia is renowned for their sparkling wines, usually drunk with the Christmas barbecue. This extraordinary speciality red sparkling wine is based on a cool climate Cabernet Shiraz blend from vines situated on the Trillians Hills in Clare Valley. It is a deep ruby colour with a lively mousse yet the savoury and plum aromas and subtle tannins give a lasting impression of elegance and well balanced restraint. Can be enjoyed in two ways – a standalone drink with friends or a beautiful accompaniment to a meal.
It is available to buy in the UK via Ellis Wines
