2012 Sparkling Shiraz
Our Sparkling Shiraz is made as a traditional shiraz, fermented in an open fermenter until dry, then aged in oak barrels for 9 months.
We use the Traditional Method to create our Sparkling Wines.
Once the base wine is ready we then add the dosage (little more yeast and sugar) and it is bottled into the sparkling bottles and sealed with a crown (or beercap) seal. The wine then undergoes a second fermentation which creates the bubbles or mousse of the wine, the now sparkling wine is aged for another 2 years on the yeast lees, adding to the complexity and depth of flavour.
It is hand disgourged and hand labelled.
Sparkling Shiraz is great with food, such as a cheese board or roast pork.
