2016 Comet Tail Sparkling Shiraz
Our sparkling shiraz is a labour of love, from grape to glass. The complex and structured base wine is enhanced by traditional bottle fermentation, hand riddling and bottle ageing, before disgorging after 18 months on yeast lees. For the finale, it is finished with dosage liqueur; adding another layer of intrigue and complexity to this wine.
Pour the 2016 Comet Tail in to your glass and revel in the aromas of crushed blueberries and fresh, warm shortbread that burst forth. From the first sip you'll be consumed by a crisp, delicate mousse, brimming with the scent of bramble fruit, evergreen earthiness and sarsaparilla. Acid and tannin dance across the palate in velvety, smooth unison.
This vivacious drop is as versatile as it is beguiling. Indulge in a glass with your next seafood lunch, a decadent dark chocolate dessert, or do as we did and pair it with scored and slow roasted pork belly on a bed of halved oranges and white wine, orange and star anise reduction served with green beans & shallots and a summer slaw.
