Deep ruby red with a youthful hue.
The Pyrenees regional five spice notes, ripe plummy fruit, a hint of oak & mature chocolate characters make for an appealing aroma.
The flavours generally follow on from the aromas with sweet spiced dark plum fruit up front, a rich chocolate confection mid palate & a lingering soft tannin, spicy dry finish.
- Winemaking Notes
The production of “Methode Traditionnelle” sparkling wines has been an integral part of the winemaking at Blue Pyrenees for many years. The Sparkling Shiraz expresses its terroir or where it comes from better than any other Blue Pyrenees sparkling. Select parcels of Shiraz are nominated in the vineyard & winery for sparkling wine production due to displaying prominent varietal & regional characters along with soft tannins & restrained alcohol. The Pyrenees grape growing seasons are generally ideal for Shiraz, starting with winter rains, cool springs & summers, followed by warm autumns, perfect for ripening red grapes. Approximately five days primary fermentation on skins in open fermenters, is followed by gentle pressing to tank & then racking off the yeast lees to small & large oak vats for 18 months oak maturation. Secondary bottle fermentation then occurs before another 1-2 years bottle maturation which allows integration of the fruit flavours, tannin, carbon dioxide & yeasty complexity. Finally riddling, disgorging & the ultimate fine tuning (dosage) for consumption takes place resulting in a spectacularly unique product.
