simply sunshine sparkling shiraz nv


A lovely wine, summery, refreshing, easy drinking in style with lashings of flavour. A wonderful accompaniment to simple grilled lamb, spicy sausages, crispy duck breast and asian style salads.
Deep red with crimson hues in colour, aromas of listed ripe Shiraz berry fruit reminiscent of dark plums and some vanilla oak type complexity. The palate has rich berry flavour and some sweet oak. This wine shows ansoft and round mouth feel with lively acid and a clean tannin finish. Serve well-chilled.

Winbemaker´s Comment:
Simply Sunshine is made by the "transfer method".
Sparkling wine made by the transfer process, follows the same procedure as Méthode Champenoise, up to the point of bottling. The secondary fermentation does not take place in the actual bottle sold to the customer. The wine is bottled en tirage. However, following secondary fermentation, the fermentation bottles are emptied under pressure and the wine filtered. This replaces the rémuage, riddling and dégorgement steps. The transferred wine is then bottled under pressure into a new set of bottles that are shipped to market.
