Region: Great Western, Victoria Grapes: Shiraz First Glance: Spiced, Savoury, Dark Fruited, Complex
The Wine: Best’s Sparkling Shiraz epitomises the regional characteristics with plenty of spice and plummy fruit characters. The base wine is left on yeast lees in bottle for 24 months or more and disgorged in the traditional method. The dosage liqueur for this wine contains a small quantity of very old Best’s Liqueur Muscat that gives the wine an added layer of interest and complements the style.
Intense and lifted aromatics of aniseed, black pepper, cherry cola and plum. Complex savoury notes of star anise, tanned leather and cured deli meat are achieved through maturation in barrel and time on lees in bottle. The palate is fresh and vibrant. Intense dark cherry fruit flavours, raisins, glazed fruitcake. The perfect accompaniment to celebrate Christmas 2023.
