Rockford Sparkling Black Shiraz N.V. Disgorged 2020

AN ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND WINE! 100% SPARKLING SHIRAZ FROM THE LEGENDARY ROCKFORD, THE BAROSSA VALLEY'S MUCH-LOVED WINERY.

"I’ll never forget a Sparkling Shiraz I found in my father’s cellar at Seppelt’s Barooga vineyard when I was a kid – I can taste it now. Many years later, when I worked at Seppelt’s Rutherglen, I met Colin Preece, the master responsible for the great old wines. Ever since, I’ve wanted to make a wine of my own that reflected his attitude and technique. This is it: Black Shiraz matured in seasoned oak, revitalised by bottle fermentation, left on lees before disgorgement and liqueuring, and then put straight back into the cellar. You’d be doing us both a favour if you left it there a bit longer so it can really show its best. But watch your kids.

Our Sparkling Black Shiraz uses the time-honoured method of ageing quality Shiraz in oak casks for many years prior to blending and bottle fermentation. The result is softness, depth and complex flavours that are impossible to duplicate in young wines." - Rockford
