Gartelmann Sparkling Shiraz is our contribution to an iconic Australian wine style. Richly fruited Shiraz is given an extra dimension from secondary fermentation.
Colour: Vibrant, regal, crimson red in colour with a fine, delicate bubble.
Aroma: The nose evokes blackberries, with a lush palate of cherry ripe and fresh tobacco, accentuated by underlying cassis notes.
Palate: The mid-palate is tantalised by these delicious, whimsical flavours before they are stolen away in a clean, quick finish that impels another taste. Serve well chilled.
Cellaring: Drinking well now and over the next few years.
Food Match: Kangaroo and game meats, lamb kebabs or Chinese dumplings. For something special, team it with a rich, dark, luxurient chocolate cake for the perfect dessert. Serve chilled.

Its Vintage time again and wow, it’s sure been hot! But overall, we are really pleased with the Hunter Valley Harvest so far. On January 9th we picked Chardonnay for our Sparkling white base, followed by Semillon and Verdelho the week after. Despite very different seasons they were both picked at the same time as last year and are showing better acid and are a little more delicate in flavour than 2018. Continue »
