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!
