Fruit for the Sparkling Shiraz is sourced predominantly from premium grape growing regions in South Australia; namely McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. Situated approximately 40km south of Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, McLaren Vale has a Mediterranean climate. With winter dominant rainfall, low humidity and long warm summers that are tempered by the proximity to the Gulf St. Vincent, McLaren Vale has one of the most consistent climates in which to grow premium wine grapes. Located on the floodplains of the Angas and Bremer River about 70km south of Adelaide, Langhorne Creek is one of the older wine growing regions in Australia with the first vines planted in the 1850’s.
A blend of Shiraz batches aged between 3 and 5 years old ensures consistency in style and quality. Each fruit parcel is matured separately in French oak barrels prior to blending with some younger vintage Shiraz which adds lush and juicy fruit characters and freshness to the palate.
