Complex and rich and relatively dry. Now is the perfect time for appreciating the sophisticated and celebratory streams of blackberry bubbles with special friends.
The 2012/2013 growing season was ideal. A wet winter and spring was followed by a cool and dry summer. The fruit ripened quickly and was harvested in late March.
The base wine was impressive, with great depth of flavour and an intense savoury nose. After a long and slow second fermentation in the bottle these sparkling wines are full bodied, complex and very flavoursome. The colour is a deep, dense red - very typical of SnowDragon wines. The Sparkling Cabernet has lifted, distinctively cabsav leafy aromas which are tobacco-like with a hint of vanilla. Deep colour and elegant flavours rich with dark fruits and black berries. The Sparklling Shiraz is lifted and fragrant tantalising the palate with it's creamy texture and spice. Elegant and sophisticated these wines are relatively dry for a sparkling reds, and the fine, persistent bead forms a soft, gentle mousse.
The base wine matured in French oak for over 24 months and then another 3.5 years on less after second ferment. All of our sparkling wines are created in their bottle using traditional sparkling wine methods. Brilliant to drink in 2018/2019!!! but if you wish to cellar this SnowDragon Sparkling Wine for 5 or 10 years, it will reward your patience with refined elegance.
