Best’s Sparkling Shiraz epitomises the regional characteristics with plenty of spice and plummy fruit characters. 

Very dark red in colour with a purple creamy mousse with a fine persistent bead

The bouquet offers a lifted nose of briary fruits, dark chocolate and some bush spices. Complex floral notes from the shiraz are mingled with the nuttiness from the time on yeast lees and the fragrant rare old muscat in the expedition liqueur.

On the palate there deep red fruit flavours mingle with notes of chocolate, a fine creamy mouthfeel and a refreshing savoury finish.

This wine is great when drunk young but will soften and continue to develop complex characters in the bottle for the next 15 years or more.
