Frazer Woods NV Sparkling Shiraz 6-Pack
The base wine was made entirely from estate grown fine Shiraz, from the family’s Willyabrup vineyard in the Margaret River Region. Fruit was picked in the early morning for preservation of fresh fruit flavours, before destemming and crushing, and fermentation in open fermenters. The new wine was matured in a blend of new and used small oak barrels, before inoculation with a special yeast culture and added sugar to induce the secondary, in-bottle fermentation, followed by more than 2 years on the yeast lees, to yield this fine, traditional Australian sparkling Shiraz
The rich dark red colour introduces a warmly aromatic wine, redolent of dark berries and black plums. The palate is rich and round, with soft, smooth tannins on the mid palate carrying luscious fruit flavours featuring prune and Christmas pudding complemented by vanilla and spicy notes. The fine and persistent mousse lifts these flavours which are sustained through a long, satisfying finish
Compliments a wide range of hearty foods through all stages of convivial dining and beyond.
