With a fine persistent effervescence, this wine is coloured deep burgundy
with a ruby hue. Lifted primary fruits of blood plum, blackberry, maraschino cherry and hints of liquorice. Aged for four years in tirage on yeast lees to provide the added complexity of mixed spice and Christmas cake.
The base blend for this wine was aged in a combination of one and three
year old French oak for twenty four months. We employed the ‘Methode
Traditionelle’ process for secondary fermentation, followed by a further 4
years on yeast lees prior to disgorging. For the liqueur d’expédition we have
added a very small amount of our Vintage Port to impart richness and
complexity to the wine.

The extra time spent aging in tirage ensures this wine is ready to drink
upon release. Natural precipitation of tannins and tartrates (as evidenced by
crystals in the neck) over this time ensures the smooth texture and complex
flavours dominate the taste experience. This wine is destined to be enjoyed
over the next year or two and will be sensational served chilled alongside
all game bird including turkey, duck or char grilled quail and squab. Our
Sparkling Shiraz is also the best starter for Christmas lunch!
