NV The Black Chook Sparkling Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Fleurieu, South Australia
A lush but incredibly refreshing summertime wine and a classic representation of the bright, Aussie flavors, crafted by highly talented female winemaker, Alexia Roberts
In traditional (methode champenoise) style, it's predominantly 3 year old Shiraz, aged in old French oak barrels showing wonderful smooth integrated fruit and a rich weighty texture across the palate. This is blended with a touch of younger vintage Shiraz bringing ripe juicy fruit characters to the finished product. This NV wine sparkles to the tune of a well balanced blend. The result being a rich, luscious Sparkling Shiraz that shows sweet dark fruits, black current fruit spice and subtle savory notes.
