Description

Australia’s best-selling sparkling shiraz is on the move, ever more refined on every level thanks to the meticulous attention of maker Paul Hotker. It’s a refreshingly elegant and low alcohol style, thanks to parcels of Langhorne Creek fruit which ripen at lower baume and uphold classic regional black jube and pepper character, boosted by the depth of components from vines of more than 50 years of age. It’s also older than ever, thanks to a big solera, 50% of which becomes the blend before being topped up with the new vintage every year. Even the liqueur for dosage is made in house to uphold a fresher and more lively style. The result is a perpetual bargain in the sparkling shiraz stakes, and in spite of its age it remains a resolutely fruit-focused style, packed with vibrant, crunchy red and dark berry fruits of all kinds, snugly wrapped in dark chocolate. It finishes with well-composed tension between tangy acidity, fine tannins and soft dosage.
