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.
