A bloody brilliant sparkling red - why arent' there more of these around?! As you poor this tasty wine into your glass, you're instantly captivated by the beautiful rich red nectar with fine spiralling bubbles. The first whiff is of lovely leathery/saddlery aromas and dark red fruit. When the delicate bubbles hit your tongue, soft cracked black pepper mingled with dark spices of cloves and star anise burst forth. Fruit driven, soft with nuances of well rounded raspberry jam - there's such a lovely blob of fruit in this wine, it's delicious!
In the winery The initial wine saw some new oak, but was then transferred into older neutral oak once it was decided to hold the wine back. The blend was put together in 2011 and the wine underwent a secondary fermentation in the bottle. After approx. 13 months, the winemakers decided the wine was ready, decanted into tank adjusted for sugar, and sourced some fabulous young fortified Shiraz for the liqueuring. This wines has been made a touch drier than most other spakling shiraz's on the market.
Food Recommendations All sorts of things from an eye catching apertif, duck pat, juicy rare steak, fall off the bone lamb shanks, to the perfect wine to wash down a sticky chocolate cake!
