De Bortoli Woodfired Sparkling Shiraz NV 75cl 13.50% ABV
This sparkling red comes from selected vineyards in Nothern Heathcote, Australia. It is a blend of two vintages with the younger adding a liveliness and freshness to the wine while the older vintage gives depth and maturity. It has been pressed and matured in vats and casks for a period of 6 months and has been racked and aerated regularly in order to the soften the wine.
It is intense purple in colour with fine crimson bubbles. The palate is packed with dark fruits and spices and the wine is soft, rich and balanced creating a calming tone. The smoothness of this wine pairs well with spicy food such as Cantonese roast duck however it also pairs deliciously with chocolate pudding.
