Turkey Flat Vineyards Sparkling Shiraz NV Barossa Valley – Sparkling Shiraz forms an integral part of the iconic Barossa tradition in viniculture. A celebration of the regions oldest and best loved grape variety, with bubbles to match. Unashamedly festive, sparkling Shiraz is the perfect addition to a Christmas lunch or Sunday brunch.
Every spring their 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 their solera system to join other base wines and aged 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 their own Pedro Ximenez.
Very dark ruby red, super complex aromas of plums, prune, cherry, blueberry tart, panforte and dark chocolate follow onto a full bodied and intensely flavoured palate. Rich yet fresh on the palate, fine with soft tannins and lingering complex flavours.
