Best's Great Western Sparkling Shiraz 2015
A deeply scented nose of potpourri, bread dough, blackberries, pistachio nuts and blood orange. Layered and complex. A rich and opulent mouthfeel with a creamy effervescence. The dark blue and plum flavours are held by silky tannins and an orange rind tang at the finish.
Best’s Sparkling Shiraz epitomizes the regional characteristics with plenty of spice and plummy fruit characters. The base wine is left on yeast lees in bottle for 22 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.
Alcohol: 14.5%, Grape: Shiraz, Lees: 22 months.
