The base for this sparkling Shiraz came from a select pick of the outstanding 2015 vintage. We fermented it with 25% whole bunches and gave it 10 months in a mix of old and new French oak before tirage bottling in early 2016. We gave it over 5 years on lees, finishing it off in May 2021.
It's a bright, rich red-purple in the glass with a generous but fine mousse, featuring aromas of spice, red fruit and dark berries. The palate is full, soft and silky with flavours of blackcurrant, plum and mulberry which are complemented by fine tannins and a long, dry finish.
The wine was given a restrained level of dosage, making for a dryer style of Sparkling Shiraz that allows the quality of the base vintage to show through.
