Gartelmann 2018 Sparkling Shiraz
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.
