Wine questions and answers: where else can I buy sparkling Shiraz Aldi?

Teresa contacted after reading Aldi’s 3-star review of Specially Selected Kooliburra Australian Sparkling Shiraz (£ 6.99 Aldi) to ask where else she can buy this wine as she could no longer find it at the local Aldi store.

This sparkling red wine, made from Shiraz grapes, is a great choice for celebrations and meetings of various kinds, as this cheerful hiss is not only pleasant to the taste, but also conversational when guests see red foam on top of their glasses. than expected, a pale green bubbly blend from all the other sparkling wines.

The flavors of cherry cola and black coffee are versatile enough to pair with canapés and snacks, as well as spicy dishes such as curry and barbecue meat – just chill the wine in the fridge for half an hour before opening if the menu has chili peppers . Drinking red wine cool is not as uncommon as you might think, and in warm countries often consume red wine this way and sometimes even add ice cubes to cool the drink even more.

Unfortunately, the Aldi version is currently missing, but Virgin Wines is selling a similar Woolundry Road sparkling Shiraz wine for £ 11.99. There are also some well-known brands that make sparkling Shiraz with Jacob’s Creek at Waitrose £ 10.75 and McGuigan at Sainsbury’s for £ 7.50. If you have a local independent wine merchant, then they can also purchase similar wine.
