Paringa Vineyards Sparkling Shiraz 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Saturated deep magenta red in color. The abundance of flavor is complimented by notes of mocha and cedar from subtle French oak maturation. The origin of the "fiz" has ensured that these fresh fruity characters have been retained in the final Sparkling Shiraz. The carbonation process has created fine bubbles that lift the fruit and spice characters giving an attractive long finish.

Fruit for these wines comes partly from our Estate managed vineyards at Red Hill plus fruit purchased from a number of carefully selected vineyards from other sub-regions of the Mornington Peninsula. “The quality of these wines are often equal to many other vineyards best” (James Halliday) The fruit for these wines is from our mature low yielding Estate grown vineyards. A combination of vine age and careful vineyard management produces our best quality fruit. Between 30% and 50% new French Oak combined with the powerful fruit flavours produce the unique Paringa "style" upon which our reputation has been built. Read less

Very refreshing. Can either be drunk before or after a meal.
