2017 'Comet Tail' Sparkling Shiraz
The 2017 Comet Tail is a seriously expressive wine that sparks the imagination and ignites the senses.
It is made in the traditional method; a time consuming and labour intensive process that results in a layered and complex wine with a smooth, velvety texture. It is effulgent ruby red and teeming with tiny bubbles that sparkle animatedly in the glass.
Led by vibrant mulberry and blackberry, the 2017 vintage is supported by a core of ripe black cherries and fruits of the forest floor. The gentle beads dance with structural tannin and bright acidity, balanced by the liveliness of fresh sorrel and savoury elements of dried sage.
The cassis flavour carries through on the palate, where it mingles with soft buttery beurre bosc pear and robust tobacco leaf. The 2017 Samuel’s Gorge Comet Tail has a completeness and elegance that deserves to be celebrated.
