Ashton Hills Sparkling Shiraz

You can taste the concentration, the deep-set texture and the inimitable flavour of ancient (half planted in 1919), dry-grown shiraz vines in this wine. Black fruits of all kinds, liquorice and olives linger with remarkable line and length, enveloped by firm, drying, mouth-encapsulating tannins, and yet never hard or overwhelming. The result is a sparkling shiraz that encapsulates the harsh Australian continent with a paradoxical grace and poise. It represents one of the greatest sparkling wines in the country, and will live effortlessly for decades. Best price direct.
