This deep ruby-red Sparkling Shiraz Cabernet is complex and earthy on the nose, elegant and lively with rich fruit characters. It displays the perfect balance of acidity and fruit sweetness.
Both varieties were crushed and fermented separately and left on skins a short time to ensure full flavoured and soft textured wines. The ferments were pumped over three times a day and completed primary fermentation in French and American oak and then aged for between 15 and 18 months in old puncheons. After blending, the wine was on tirage for 18 months before being disgorged and liqueured with 1996 Vintage Port, which has contributed to the wines incredible complexity.
