Sparkling Red

Ashton Hills Sparkling Shiraz 2015


Crafted from Clare Valley fruit from only the best vintages, Stephen George’s take on this cult style is one of the titans of the genre. Fruit has been sourced from revered Wendouree vineyards in the Clare Valley, with dry grown plantings dating back to 1919.

NOSE: Dark plums, cherries and redcurrant, Christmas cake spice with cinnamon and clove. Notes of earth, leather and roast game.

MOUTH: Aged complexities, savoury tannins and a steady bead are balanced with a ripe and luscious fruit sweetness.

GROWING CONDITIONS: After an almost text book growing season, with strong winter rainfall, the 2015 harvest was kick started early by above average temperatures in February. Although an earlier than usual harvest, the subsequent wine shows fantastic varietal definition with good flavour, structure and excellent natural acidity.

FOOD PAIRING: Try a savoury course of hard cheeses (Manchego, aged cheddars) with sliced walnut bread, or a dessert of dark chocolate cake and berry compote.

Alc/Vol: 14%
