Founder's Block Sparkling Shiraz 2017

Founder's Block Sparkling Shiraz 2017

Sparkling Shiraz is a great Australian creation. We make a serious 'base wine' from Shiraz then the wine undergoes the Charmat process to infuse with refreshing bubbles. It's perfect served well chilled with Christmas fare or any time of the year with full flavoured cuisine.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Juicy, ripe blackberry, plum and ripe, red berry fruits enhanced by subtle sweet spices and hints of dark chocolate. Creamy bubbles lead to soft tannins on the lingering finish.
Vineyard Notes
Compared to recent years, Coonawarra's 2017 vintage was later than usual, with a cool growing season. Overall harvest temperatures were slightly warmer than average, producing excellent Shiraz fruit with good colour and vibrant varietal character.
Winemaker Notes
Concentrated dark cherry, plum and raspberry notes with hints of chocolate and spice.
Food Pairing Notes
An appealing and versatile wine, best served chilled. Enjoy with barbecued meats or antipasto and cheese platters. Also perfect at the end of a meal with chocolate desserts.
Other Notes
A parcel of this wine was matured in a combination of French and American oak.

I have finally found a worthy replacement following the demise of Yalumba D. This is a luscious, robust drop, that unashamedly dishes up lashings of beautiful bubbly, balanced Shiraz flavour. What all exceptional sparkling shirazes should aspire to. The perfect end to a long week, or a lazy Sunday sitting in the late afternoon sun, as it slowly sets. A firm fan! Expect many orders...
