Review – Leasingham Classic Clare Sparkling Shiraz 1995

91 points

From Clare Valley, South Australia.

Truly an Australian classic. Sparkling Burgundy as many Australian’s still call it has to be one of Australia’s best kept secrets. This wine is a gorgeous rich spicey sparkling Shiraz. Lovely degree of fruit sweetness still, will obviously live many years. Great balance.

My only criticism is that it is a little straightforward, perhaps others would call this purity. Normally I have this complaint about still Shiraz from Great Western in Victoria – probably the greatest source of sparkling shiraz. Odd that it should be round the other way here.
