"Look out for an assault on your senses! Your taste buds will probably take a minute or two to adjust but I guarantee you will be reaching for a second slug. Winemaker Peter Rumball rightly suggests that this is a uniquely Australian wine style. The rich, ripe shiraz fruit is balanced by the wine’s acidity. It’s full bodied, a little dry, spicy and beautiful to drink."
Winery Tasting Notes
The Sparkling Shiraz is elegant with full fruit and strong Shiraz varietal character. It has a soft, smooth palate and is a great wine to complement fully flavoured foods. The Coonawarra Shiraz gives the palate a long fruit finish with a roundness and depth to the middle palate.
