Ashton Hills Sparkling Shiraz

One of the greatest sparkling shirazes of all, with considerable concentration, leading out rich and full, fanning out into a tightly defined palate, finishing savoury, honed and impeccably constrained. It’s laced together with very fine, firm tannins, yet never aggressive nor obvious, melding seamlessly with black and blue fruits and gentle sweetness. Old Wendouree vines infuse definition, effortless concentration and poised restraint. $45 at The Vine Press and WineStar.
