A unique and delicious interpretation of the Australian classic, this pinot noir-led sparkling red wine is a great companion to food and friends.

The move from McLaren Vale to cool-grown Vic shiraz (and Yarra pinot) has resulted in a much finer and better balanced sparkling wine - indeed, the finest on the market, and excellent value. Rating 94 - James Halliday, Austarlian Wine Companion 2012
Sits very much within the delicate, floral Blanc de Blancs paradigm. Lemon citrus, white stonefruit flesh, honeysuckle, toasted nuts and cut green apples with yeasty, shortbread notes providing a little depth and complexity.Jeremy Pringle Wine Will Eat Itself, 7 February 2013
Winery Tasting Notes
The nose offers an array of dark berry fruit aromas, from ripe cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants through to sweet blueberries.
Sweet spice notes of liquorice, cinnamon and cloves echo throughout the full, rich, and mouthfilling palate. The bubbles from the prise de mousse add softness and weight to the middle palate with fine chalky tannins contributing structure and length and a bright, persistent and savoury finish.
