The year was 1991, Sarah and Sparky Marquis had recently married after completing their winemaking studies with the world at their feet. They had each other, they had $1000 between them and they had dreams of developing their own business.

Over the next few years, they went from strength to strength. They won the Bushing King and Queen Trophy for Best Wine in Show three times and were crowned Australian Boutique Winemakers of the Year, as well as Australian White Winemakers of the Year.

Success soon found them again as they were named Australian Winemakers of the Year in 1999. Global wine aficionado, Robert Parker from the Wine Advocate, described the wines they made as ‘The greatest red wine values in existence... Run, don’t walk and secure as much as you can of these wines!’ They were also named as one of Robert Parker’s ‘Top Wine Personalities in the World.’

Of all the fantastic wines Sarah & Sparky produce, we think the most fitting for a Pride celebration is Carnival of Love! Since its release, this 100% Shiraz has become an almost mythical wine.

When the 2005 vintage was first released it sold out in just five days! We were lucky enough to get our hands on some of both the 2005 & 2006 vintage, which we can now offer to you - exciting stuff.

Sourced from a single vineyard, Carnival of Love is full of luscious cherry, blackberry and plum jam fruit flavours marry together, forming this powerful yet elegant Shiraz. It has now developed a seriously impressive level of complexity thanks to its age - It's silky-smooth, fresh and superbly balanced.

 

These are old vintages and have some damage to the labels. They are sold as seen.
