Best's Sparkling Shiraz 2014
Best’s Sparkling Shiraz epitomises the regional characteristics with plenty of spice and plummy fruit characters. The base wine is left on yeast lees on bottle for 20 months or more and disgorged in the traditional method. The dosage liqueur for this wine contains a small quantity of very old Best’s Liqueur Muscat that gives the wine an added layer of interest and complements the style.

The Wine Front – It’s fresh, clean, mellow through the palate but then rich and sweet to close. It tastes of black cherry and boysenberry, mint and plum, though the finish then pours on toffee, chocolate and raisin notes. It shows some warmth, but the flavour pushes long. The dosage is probably a touch too high for my tastes but then I’d also reckon that it’s been finely tuned and balanced, and that’s hard to argue against. Pretty impressive all round. Some nice ‘florals’ here too.
