2019 Majella Sparkling Shiraz Coonawarra – Sparkling red wines are a great Australian tradition, and along with other wineries Majella has kept the tradition alive with their very popular Sparkling Shiraz.
The base wine of their sparkling Shiraz is matured in 2nd and 3rd use French oak hogsheads for 5 months before secondary fermentation. The wine is on “lees” for 12 months and using methode traditionalle, the bottles are hand riddled, then disgorged and a small amount of liqueur (vintage port) is added for extra complexity.
A vibrant dark red colour with a bright ruby hue. Exhibiting a fine bead with attractive fresh plum, raspberry and blackberry aromas with similar black fruit characters and a hint of spice on the complex palate, which is smooth, balanced and luscious with gentle tannins and a generous finish.
It’s a great wine for any occasion, and goes well with most food styles.
