where can i buy the banrock station sparkling shiraz? – Both Asda and Tesco used to stock it in my area (great yarmouth) – but now i cant find it anywhere!
I know its annoying! sainsburys do a sparkling shiraz by jacobs creek which almost exactly same, or waitrose sell it
Hi jacqueline, i have just found your comment whilst searching on the internet for stockists of this wine. I also love the banrock station sparkling shiraz and like you were able to buy it at tesco,sainsburys and asda. I don’t understand why they don’t stock it anymore,maybe it wasn’t very popular? The only place i can find it is at waitrose and it is a little more expensive there. The jacobs creek sparkling shiraz (widely available) doesn’t even come close! Some of my friends prefer to drink the banrock chilled but i prefer it slightly warmed up as it enhances the gorgeous berry flavours-delicious!
The only other place that might do it is Booths (which is mainly in the North West). Store finder is here. You can find it online at Everywine.co.uk (which is part of Booths).
I think it might be out of season, as Waitrose have also run out…
I think it’s still available to buy online at Waitrose. So hopefully they’ll have it back in store at some point soon.
I’ve emailed waitrose about this, but they say that Banrock station sparkling shiraz has been discontinued. Maybe if enough people ask about it, they might bring it back. In the meantime can anyone suggest a good alternative (that is available)
A quick search on Google came up with this: thedrinkshop.com which has a Peter Lehmann Sparkling Shiraz – quite pricey though. Otherwise, here are all the Sparkling Shiraz’s on Everywine.co.uk
i heard too from Waitrose today that Banrock Station sparkling shiraz is now discontinued, cannot believe it! its our favourite wine for special occasions!!!! I knew i should have bought a case load, pah!
www.drinksdirect.co.uk seems to have a few sparkling shiraz wines – not banrock station though
I have also been looking for this lovely wine. Banrock Station still produce it according to their website. I will be writing to Waitrose too.
This Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz is deep red in colour with crimson hues. The bouquet of lifted Shiraz berry fruit is reminiscent of mulberry and plum, with light oak giving a background of sweet coconut. The palate shows intense dark berry fruit with a luscious texture, and is balanced by lightly toasted oak. An excellent tannin structure and fresh acidity gives the Sparkling Shiraz good persistence.
I have been to my local waitrose to ask about this wine. There has been a problem with banrock stations quality of grape which has meant they have not produced the wine for a little while and to date there has been no indication that the problem has been sorted
I also love this wine, nothing else comes close was going to get some in for Christmas & New Year!! Not going to be the same now
I too have been on the hunt for this lovely wine but without success, so I have this week contacted Banrock Station and this is their response: “Unfortunately Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz has been discontinued in UK. Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz was discontinued as a result of the supermarket chains de-listing this product, not due to quality, but due to low volumes going through their stores. Although Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz may have been more successful in different parts of the UK, unfortunately at this stage, there are no plans to ship this product back into UK, as there is not enough volume to warrant the shipping requirements. We suggest a comparable product would be Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz Rose which is available in most major supermarkets in UK”.
I reckon we need a Facebook campaign to bring it back!
I am gutted. I searched last year and again this year, now I know why I can’t find it!! I am guilty in that I only bought it for special occassions too. Paula, have you set up a Facebook campaing yet as I will join? And I will have more ‘special occassions’ in future, if it comes back to us.
Please please lets get a campaign going the rose is nowhere near as good!!
Hi this is Mike from supermarketwine.com
We’re delighted your posting such great comments. We’ll help in any way we can and we’ll certainly join a facebook campaign. I’ll also see if we can get any joy from Tesco and others. Let’s get Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz back on the shelf!
I am more than happy to set up a Facebook campaign!! In the meantime, try Jacobs Creek Sparkling Shiraz. It’ll put you on until the good stuff is back!
I’ve now tried Jacob’s Creek but even that’s hard to find and its not as good as Banrock Station. I might even join facebook for a Banrock Station campaign
I am so disappointed…we must get a campaign going on facebook!!!
I have set up a Facebook Campaign. Search for Bring Back Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz or find under the email address: email@example.com
I tried to find the Facebook Campaign to join but was unable to actually join it or find it. Is there any chance you can post a direct link to this so we can all see it.
I’ll try, if I can work out how to do it!
Everyone should be able to find the page now on Facebook.
Come on all you Banrock Station sparkling red devotees,back this campaign up and get them to import this beautiful wine again.
‘Bring Back Banrock’, life’s celebrations not the same without this wonderful wine!
Gutted Waitrose no longer stock this.I’ve joined you on Facebook.
Life just got a bit sadder, as we are unable to celebrate New Year with Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz. There must be a wine merchant out there who is prepared to source supplies, even if limited, I am prepared to pay a premium for the sheer pleasure!
Am interested in this post as here in Australia we have bountiful supplies of beautiful sparkling reds. They were rare here 10-12 year ago but have been very popular since the mid 00’s. As my Mother in the UK laments very few are available in the UK. I see you can get Wyndham Bin 555 at some online stores and would definitely recommend that over either the Jacob’s creek or the Banrock we have available here (Export quality is often better than domestic so your Banrock may be different). If you ever get the opportunity (friend going to Aussie or something) I would recommend trying Mr Morris Sparkling Durif (one of the original sparkling reds here)and sparkling reds by Wise Wines (WA), Hollicks (SA) and Katnook (SA). Meanwhile goodluck with your campaign
My husband and I have just opened our very last bottle and what a pleasure it was. It has to be the very best sparkling shiraz in the world. We shared it over a plate of, wait for it-corned beef hash!sorry sorry sorry, but I have to say that it suited the dish beautifully. What are we all going to do without it? The Rose is not a substitute at all, I hate the pink stuff regardless of who made it. Please Mr Banrock Station keep the Ashes in exchange for the bubbles. I really really love Australia, honest. Love from Hilary x
I loved this wine so much and have been searching for it for the last 18 months, but to no avail. We had the Wyndham Estate (I think)version on Christmas Day, but it wasn’t a patch on the Banrock! I’ll look for the Facebook campain. I need this wine and miss it so much!!
Stumbled across this forum while searching for a stockist of Banrock.We now drink the (not as good)Wyndham Estate wine which Morrisons sell.This is also available in Makros cash & carry for about 40% less.
Has anyone tried this wine – Gran Casali Lambrusco Grasparossa – which is a sparkling red? It’s got a good review, but it’s currently out of stock.
I wish I had tried the Banrock because I love both the Jacobs Creek and Wynham Estate. Any news about how, where, who we badger in order to get it?
Ive been struggling to find any sparkling shiraz for the last couple of xmases. Its strange because at home in britain i love it warm at christmas. And yet in oz i drink it chilled in the summer. I wish we could get rumballs sparkling shiraz over here. I’d be happy with banrock station though as a close second and a cheaper alternative. Will join the facebook campaign!!
can i get this wine in indonesia…???
please answer my question to my rmail address…
Laithwaites do a sparkling Shiraz called Tomahawk.. It’s well worth a try.Still not as good as Banrock though.
My favourite wine, use to by in Tesco and then Waitrose, who told me they had stop stocking it due to quality issues, and they would be stocking it again. However if you are in France I bought a case at Cheers in Calais in December (£5.00 a bottle), only wish I had brought more.
I am in agreement with you all. I searched for ages to no avail to find the Banrock Sparkling Shiraz. I just love it. I have one bottle left which I am treasuring!! I only wish I had known before it was going to be stopped I would have stocked up. I was told that it wasnt a good year and no more had been produced but obviously not. Yes we must get it back I shall go on facebook
just stumbled on this site and all my worst fears confirmed – no more Banrock Sparkling Shiraz! I have been searching for ages for it since Waitrose stopped stocking it. Will sign in to Facebook right now ….
Just opened my last bottle of this last weekend. Searching to re-stock and found this website. Gutted.. would have saved it…
Wyndham Estate Binn 555 available at Morrisons is fab but pricey x
have tried a couple of wine merchants for this beautiful wine to no avail. it is the only red wine i found palateable. please bring it back.
we too have been searching for this. we are going to our local park this afternoon to listen to the band,bacon butty, last bottle [hope not] rittual 6 times a year
Well I thought I was the only Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz orphan, but you are all here ! When will we be reunited ? nothing comes near to it. I use to have to buy at least two at a time so one could go in the fridge to drink in perfection. miss you
I’ve just discovered this site and am glad it’s not just me searching for my most favourite wine, I will plead with my local Waitrose to bring it back!
I have been searching for Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz for the last two years, it was our treat to order a case of wine from Waitrose in November ready for Christmas as a treat for ourselves and family. I, like many of you wish I had purchased a few bottles while it was available to keep us going, Come on Waitrose , do the decent thing !!
I am devastated. Nothing comes close to Banrock and I cannot believe there is not a single stockist out there. I will have a word with my local Off Licence (they have an ecclectic mix in there) and ask if he would be prepared to stock if we all bought on line!!! :0)
I searched for ages for this scrummy wine, which I used to drink on a regular basis. Wanted some for my 60th birthday. Even got in touch with Banrock pleading to reintroduce, but last email just ignored! I really haven’t found any other wine that comes close to it
I too searched high and low for my favourite red but to no avail. But a short trip across the channel solved my problem. I’ve never seen so many boxes. The words ‘kid’ and ‘candyshop’ springs to mind.
So those living in the southeast and London should give it a go, its doesn’t cost much on a ferry (£20) and you can kill 2 birds with one stone buy stocking up for christmas
This can be bought from www.booze.ie in Ireland but it’s 17 euros a bottle and I didn’t check out the postage! I’m off to France in December so will try and get some then!
Drunk this superb wine in large quantities in the past. Bought from Sainsburys, but when they stopped placing on the shelves, we went onto other sparkling wines. Nothing beats this fine wine for a mouthful of pleasure. Next stop Facebook….. bring back BSSS.
Used to love this wine and always bought a couple of bottles for my birthday, have been searching for quite sometime for stockists
I’ve recently been to France,in search of my favorite wines, but can no longer find BSSS which used to sell out regulary at all super markets previously mentioned so IT WAS POPULAR I bought cases at a time but sainsburys and waitrose simply can’t be bothered to order more for whatever reason? I truly wish someone else made something similar but no-one does….GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE TRYING
Where is it??? been searching for some time. Its a lovely wine and very popular. Stock it someone please.
HI, i live in mexico, i have 3 bottle of Banrock Station (The reserve) Sparkling Shiraz.
I got in touch with the Vineyard, directly and also spoke with their HQ in the Uk, they no longer import this as they say it was not viable,i have since sourced another if not better, called Tomahawk from Laithwaites, also found a McQuigan Black label sparkling red Shiraz, slightly deeper in flavour
Last time I seen it was on a cross channel ferry between Dover and Calais in the duty free but that was December 2009. Anyone know if they still have it on board?
not surprised so many are seeking this wine…perfect for the garden in the sunshine. thanks Barney (did you go to Barney like me though?) for the suggestions. I must write to the vineyard and tell them to catch themselves on!
Thx Barney, I will give them a try, but I have bought a different name from Morrisons a few yra ago, but no comparison in taste.
If anyone has had any luck with finding this wine, could you please put your comment on here.
Many Thanks, Lisa…
I have fond memories of this wine, which i have not seen anywhere for at least 3 to 4 years .I have certainly not tasted anything that even comes close to it. I am sure its un availability is due to a falling out between the Supermarkets and the Vintners over price what ever!
