Stuart McCloskey "The Majella sparkling Shiraz has a lovely mousse / palate feel and sings loud and proud. The base wine is matured in 2nd and 3rd use French oak hogsheads for 5 months before secondary fermentation. The wine is on “lees” for 12 months and using méthode traditionnelle, the bottles are hand riddled, then disgorged with a small dash of vintage port. Personally (if I should declare this), I much prefer Majella’s fizz over Wild Duck & Hentley Farm."
Winemaker "Making sparkling red wine is an Australian tradition and Majella have kept this tradition alive with their popular sparkling Shiraz - a great wine for any occasion. Intensely powerful and rich, the colour is a vibrant deep red with a ruby hue. A creamy raspberry bouquet with a luscious palate displaying sweet berry flavours with hints of plum, nutmeg and gentle tannins."
