Tasting Notes

Winery Notes: "This very Australian wine style is very dark red with an opulent purple mousse of fine bubbles. Complex layers of aromas, blueberries, plums, black olives, potpourri, fresh bread, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and grilled nuts. Round plush fruit flavours with notes of spice and all things nice. The savoury mouthfeel and fine bead of bubbles give this wine a long persistent finish. This wine is great when drunk young but will soften and continue to develop complex characters in the bottle for the next 15 years or more. Drink it with a crumbly old cheddar cheese or roast turkey. Best’s Great Western Sparkling Shiraz was re- introduced at Best’s in 2006 after almost 40 years of absence. The sparkling Shiraz style is synonymous with Great Western and has been made in the region since the early 1900s. Best’s Sparkling Shiraz epitomises the regional characteristics with plenty of spice and plummy fruit characters. The base wine is typically left on yeast lees in bottle for 12 months or more and disgorged in the traditional method. This particular wine the "late disgorgement" was left on lees for an extended period of two years which gives the wine a finer bead and greater complexity. The dosage liqueur for this wine contains a small quantity of very old Best’s Liqueur Muscat that gives the wine an added layer of interest and complements the style."
