Tyson Stelzer - "Another glorious Majella Sparkling Shiraz greets the world ........... Like every Majella red, it’s a tribute to the finely manicured estate vines of one of Australia’s most celebrated vineyards, layered with plum and dark berry fruit and just the right touch of dark chocolate oak."
Sparkling red wines are a great Australian tradition, and along with other wineries, Majella has kept the tradition alive with their very popular sparkling Shiraz.
Majella Sparkling Shiraz is bottled fermented on "lees" for just on 24 months. The wine is then disgorged and a small amount of "liqueur" (sweetener) is added. In true Aussie tradition some fantastic vintage port is used as the sweetener.
Majella is one of the most awarded small wineries in Australia. Critics consistently rate vintages of this sparkling Coonawarra wine highly.
