Peregrine Ridge Wins Trophy for Best Sparkling Wine at the 2015 Heathcote Wine Show

Peregrine Ridge has won the trophy for the Best Sparkling Wine at the 2015 Heathcote Wine Show.

The winning wine was the 2006 Winemaker’s Reserve Sparkling Shiraz Late Disgorge which recently won gold and trophy for the Best Sparkling Red at the Australian Sparkling Wine Show.  It is elegant, silky, fruit driven and balanced, and the perfect accompaniment to terrine, pate, duck and game meats.

The bouquet is a seductive amalgam of raspberries, cherries, plums and blackberries with a hint of yeast and spice. A finely textured palate follows, dominated by lifted raspberries, cherries and plums.

This wine was matured in 100% new French oak for 18 months and then bottle fermented for a further 81 months. The extended time on lees delivers a fine, persistent bead and creamy mousse.

Vintage Chart

From time to time, customers, who have had the patience to lay down some of our wines, contact us to find out when they should be starting to enjoy them.

We have put together this chart to assist with all of our vintage wines.  We have also put together a drinking guide for those fans of our Non-Vintage Sparkling Shiraz which can be accessed here.

We have just updated these charts, so if you have some wines in your cellar, take a look and see where we think things are at as at December 2016.  We've also added a bit more detail!  We've included a decanter for a couple of wines that we know will benefit from decanting prior to serving, and we've put a green background on the wines that are absolutely ready to go!

Enjoy!

Peregrine Ridge Wins Gold at the 2015 Daylesford Wine Show

Peregrine Ridge has just won a gold award for its Non-Vintage Sparkling Heathcote Shiraz at the 2015 Daylesford Wine Show.  This Sparkling Shiraz was the highest scoring sparkling red in the Sparkling Wine class.  The judges noted that this was a "good class, with top award winners showing freshness and complexity.”

This is the second cuvee of our Non-Vintage Sparkling Shiraz and it follows in the footsteps of our first cuvee which won 2 Trophies and 4 Gold Awards.  This cuvee has been dosaged with a small quantity of estate grown fortified Shiraz, which adds richness and complexity.  The cuvee was matured in 50% new French and 50% seasoned French and American oak for 11 months prior to bottling and then bottle fermented for a further 24 months, to enable the cuvee to fully develop its bottle fermentation characteristics.

It is the perfect accompaniment to Christmas fare including fruit mince pies, fruit cake and shortbread!
