Gartelmann 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. The base wines are specially selected for their style and aged in old oak barrels for 12 - 15 months.
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.
