Turkey Flat Sparkling Shiraz 75cl 13% ABV
Sparkling Shiraz, in some circles, is considered as something of an oddity. In the Barossa however it’s formed part of an iconic tradition, with the cult following to match. Every spring winemaker Mark Bulman, meticulously assesses the multitudes of Shiraz barrels and a select few are set aside for sparkling production. Rich in primary fruit and naturally low in tannin this Shiraz is perfect for this bottle-fermented sparkling wine. The Shiraz then goes into our solera system to join other base wines and aged for an average of 8 years in French casks. The base wine is then blended and tiraged in the traditional method. Following the secondary fermentation the wine is left to mature on lees for approximately one year before disgorgement and liquoring with our own Pedro Ximenez.
Very dark ruby red, super complex aromas of plums, prune, cherry, blueberry tart, panforte and dark chocolate. A full bodied and intensely flavoured palate which is rich yet fresh. Soft tannins and lingering complex flavours complete this wine. Cellar up to 10 years.
