All the sweet, ripe velvety richness that you should want in a Sparkling Shiraz, with a long, luxurious finish. Be warned though, one sip and this wine could have you sneaking off to a quiet corner and blissfully forgetting about everything else.
ColourDeep, dark garnet red.
Deep garnet with blackberry, blood plum and cassis aromas. Notes of chocolate, mint, ripe berries and star anise overlay a creamy mid palate mousse from the 18 months on lees. Deftly balanced, fine velvety tannins add structured length and persistence to the finish.
Picked in the cool of the early mornings, this Shiraz was fermented on its skins in small open and tank fermenters over a period of seven to ten days. R2323, AWRI 350 and EC1118 yeasts were used to ferment the various parcels of fruit. Tannin extraction was minimised and the ferment allowed to reach up to 30°C to create vibrant fruit extraction. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel.
The wines selected for this cuvée were aged in old French and Hungarian oak hogsheads for between six and forty months and include small amounts of 2005 and 2006 vintage wine. Created by the méthode traditionelle, the wine was fermented in bottle and aged on lees for 12 months. Disgorged in December 2009, it was then cellared for a further 12 months prior to release.
