Home of the Brave Sparkling Red NV
- Rich, complex
- Barossa Valley
Tincadeira, otherwise known as Tinta Amarela, is a widely planted variety in Portugal. But not so well known here in Australia… yet. It is a grape that thrives in long, hot and dry conditions: Step into the scene, Barossa Valley and the capable hands of Home of the Brave to produce a sparkling red you simply must try. With an array of spiced stewed fruits, dried plums and cranberries and a christmas pudding character all balanced out with a dark rum and raisin chocolate overtone, be sure to know that you’ll get your money’s worth with this drop. The moussey texture and soft finish are testament to the winemaking skills behind this. Be brave, mofos. You’re in for a treat.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
