- Cellar 5 - 6 years (2019-2020)
- ABV 13%
- Closure: Cork
This solid sparkling red builds its base with fruit from mature Mclaren Vale Shiraz vines combined with a tiny batch of older Grenache that adds both lift and spice. This is then finished off with a small batch of fortified vintage Shiraz from Ben’s prized Piebald Vineyard, which brings the subtle sweetness to an otherwise rich and complex wine.
Pours with a good creamy purple tinged mousse which once dissipated reveals a bright dark red base wine colour with a very fine and profuse bead. Pronounced aromas of ripe blackberries and liquorice are overlaid by some dark chocolate with vanillin oak end notes. Rich luscious flavours of ripe blackberries and dark chocolate are to the fore followed by some dark plum, liquorice and vanillin oak nuances. Creamy texture finishing relatively dry with a medium to long aftertaste of dark plum, dark chocolate, liquorice and vanillin oak.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
