Winemaking Notes

Our Sparkling Shiraz is unique. After a traditional six day ferment on skins, the parcels of Shiraz selected are barrel aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels, of which 30% are new – exactly the same treatment as the E&E Black Pepper Shiraz.

After blending the components, we then mature the base wine for a further 12 months in old French oak barrels, to add complexity and soften the tannins. After 30 months maturation, the wine goes through traditional bottle fermentation, before lees ageing in bottle, riddling and then disgorgement. Topped at disgorgement with a touch of liqueur to give a touch of sweetness to the finish.
