  • Sale
  • Regular price £23.50

A vibrant purple and persistent mousse, the bead lively; a wine that tickles the nose as it tantalizes the palate. The nose is a swirl of exotic spice, ripe plum and black olive, a heady mix that draws you back for another whiff of dark fruits and a hint of cedar. The palate is full and fresh, slightly sweet, showing strong flavours of mint, black fruits and Christmas spice. The wine is balanced and concludes with persistent tannin and intertwined acidity. The Shiraz is grown in a vineyard surrounded by peppermint bushes, giving the fruit the whispers mint. The base wine is prepared using the time honoured techniques of open fermenting, foot treading and basket pressing. Addition of liqueur tirage instigates secondary fermentation and creates bubbles with a unique vibrant purple colour.
