She has arrived, our new sparkling - 2018 Oakdene Sparkling Shiraz

The second release of our Shiraz based traditional method Vintage Sparkling is here! This wine was last produced in 2011 and sold out double time.

Crafted from 100% Shiraz, and sourced entirely from the 2001 planting which produces the fruit for our Single Vineyard William Shiraz.  The base wine for this sparkling is effectively a barrel selection from the 2018 vintage, where the wine was blended, bottled and tiraged, then aged on lees for 18 months prior to disgorgement.

This is a complex, dry, savoury Sparkling Shiraz to be enjoyed chilled now, or over the next few years

The fruit was harvested early to retain acidity and allow long term aging on yeast lees. The wine is a dry (or brut) style made from 100% Chardonnay made in the “traditional method”, where the secondary ferment takes place in bottle. The wine is left to ferment and age on lees for 24 months before hand riddling, disgorging, corking and finished with a measured dosage (still wine and sugar addition) to balance the wine and fill out the palate.

Available this weekend in the cellar door for tastings and purchase.  Open 10 am - 4pm, 7 days.
