2016 Frederick Reserve Sparkling Shiraz

Traditionally made with mature shiraz aged in old oak
With a Delicate, creamy dark purple mousse it shows a very long and good hold
The excellent mousse dissipates to reveal a dark crimson red-coloured base with a steady stream of fine bubbles flowing through it.
The nose offers up a good lift with top notes of ripe dark plums, dark chocolate and liquorice followed by some confectionery notes. 
Full-bodied with rich creamy texture on the palate which delivers fruit with a long and soft finish. 
Concentration with a long succulent aftertaste.


91 points from Wine Orbit l Attractively fruited and nicely lifted on the nose showing dark plum, spiced cherry, cocoa and green olive notes, it's succulent and supple on the palate delivering ripe fruit flavours with rounded mouthfeel and fleshy texture, finishing smooth and flavoursome.
