The Black Queen Sparkling Shiraz could be thought of as Champagne for red wine drinkers. The base fruit is from a nearly 100 year old vineyard, aged in older oak for a year and then bottle fermented and aged on lees for 4 years. The result – a mellow, dark fruits and fruitcake flavour packed bubbly that can be enjoyed on a variety of occasions. Served chilled as an aperitif, at the end of a meal or anytime you want a treat!

Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"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.

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.

Fermented on skins for 10 days, pressed, clarified and then matured for 12 months in older French oak hogsheads. The base wine was then bottle-fermented and aged on its yeast lees for four years. After disgorgement, a small percentage of The King Vintage Port was used as an expedition liqueur to build complexity and enhance the rich Christmas cake fruit characters."
