NV Sparkling Red

$74.90

We use the traditional Australian technique for our sparkling red, as pioneered by Seppelts at Great Western. The base wine is aged for around two years or so in oak and then tirage bottled and left on lees for up to four years. This gives a complex aromatic of fruit sweetness and classic autolysis character and fine bubble. An important factor is the liquering dosage as this degree of sweetness has helped some of the classic examples age for decades. The extra year on lees has both increased the autolysis brioche and cedar complexity and allowed the sweeter notes in the base wine to come through further. The same rate of liquer d’expedition as last years disgorgement gives the mouthfeel generosity and provides on of the key ingredients for longevity
