A vibrant wine displaying rich, dark mulberry and red plum characters with overtones of mocha and spice.
A luscious wine rich and soft in texture. A velvety mid-palate of succulent plum blackberry, dark chocolate and spicy vanillin oak. Finishing soft and elegant with great tannin length.
Grapes are harvested at moderate ripeness with the berries full of flavours of plum, blackberry and hints of liquorice. The fruit was fermented at a cool temperature to ensure maximum flavour and colour extraction. The wine is then matured gently in a combination of seasoned French and American oak barrels for 12-18 months. This allows the winemaking team to produce a rich and complex Sparkling Shiraz consistent in style.
Awards & Reviews
"McLaren Vale shiraz of stature and depth yet crunch and brightness makes for a sparkling shiraz of character and appeal. Dark berry fruits meld seamlessly with dark chocolate (thanks for 16 months maturation in seasoned French oak barrels). A full dosage of 32g/l counters tannin grip and renders the finish sweet." - James Halliday Wine Companion 2018
