The only thing to kick the Shiraz Cabernet Blend off the top of the Aussie icon wine list is the Sparkling Shiraz….and we have given it a red hot go.
Made from fruit 100-year-old vines in McLaren Vale this is an amazing wine even if it was without the fancy bottle and all the fizz. Rich chocolate and mocha nougat are basically fighting for your olfactory system. The intensity from the glass is perfect. Cinnamon, clove and soft red fruits pay homage to the three years we patiently looked after this wine in oak.
The fine mousse on the palate and the persistent bead in the glass is exactly what we were hoping to achieve with our first ever Sparkling Shiraz. The sweet mid palate cranberry fruits and spice of French oak give rise to a wine of fantastic complexity and we sincerely hope you enjoy this exciting new wine from Glandore.
What’s the menu plan? Whole suckling pig with crackling and few salads just to play the part but really, it’s all about the pig.
