Sparkling red wines are a great Australian tradition, and along with other wineries Majella has kept the tradition alive with our very popular sparkling Shiraz.
The base wine the sparkling Shiraz was matured in oak for 6 months before secondary fermentation on “lees” for 24 months. The wine is then disgorged and a small amount of liqueur (vintage port) is added for extra complexity.
The colour is a vibrant deep red with a ruby hue. The bouquet has oak derived vanilla, plums and spice. The palate is luscious with plum, cherry and raspberry fruit characters shining through and has tannin, acid and sugar balanced in just the right amounts.
