Expert Reviews

92 PTS - "”This level of richness is hard to find in a sparkling Shiraz without really forking out for it. Kppstein’s is built on layers of powerful black fruits which culmite in a sweet finish. Give it a few years in the cellar for the oak to integrate.” - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Business Magazine, Jan 2008

89 PTS - "This is a clean, pure, warm sparkling red, full of plum and chocolate-like flavours and quite bready and cakey in its aromatics. It's satisfying if not sensatiol, and is decently priced. I suspect it will drink even better in another two or three years time." - Campbell Mattinson, www.winefront.com.au, May 2008

Winery Tasting Notes

Palate

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy in the first few years of release.

Winemaking Note

The base wines are made with very little manipulation to allow fruit to show through. Fermentation is done simply in static fementers and gently pumped over once a day. Ferment lasts around 14-18 days. Wines are allowed to settle before being racked to old barrels for maturation. The base wines are then transferred to bottle where they stay for 18 months on yeast lees.
