Sparkling Shiraz is a unique Australian wine style, and former Chief Winemaker Andrew Wigan was inspired to make a great sparkling wine from Barossa Shiraz in the 1980s.
Often referred to as the ‘Jewel in our Crown’ our Black Queen Sparkling Shiraz is a unique and indulgent wine using grapes sourced from premium vineyards in the Barossa region, used to craft this exceptional wine. Best enjoyed chilled, and matches beautifully with rock oysters or roast turkey. A true celebratory wine to enjoy with family, friends and fine food.
The 'jewel in our crown', this unique and indulgent Sparkling red wine boasts naturally low tannins and rich juicy blue fruit flavours, balanced by spice and a savoury finish.
WINE MAKERS NOTES
Bright and deep red, the aroma is abundant in savoury plum, fennel seed and dark chocolate aromas.
The cool, slow ripening vintage of 2017 has melded the quality of Black Queen in to a age-worthy classic. Naturally low in tannins, the wine is soft and abundant in rich dark fruits with a lovely Christmas cake-like finish. The sweetness is apparent, but balanced by the complexity of fruit-weight and time spent on tirage before disgorgement.
