This seductive red sparkling is both fruity and earthy, with spice and mulberry fruit flavours galore. Foamy and effervescent, this is a wine for celebration. It’s intense and full with a lingering peppery finish and a great balance of tannins. Perfectly suited to gamey meats like duck.

VINIFICATION

Made entirely from fruit grown in our own vineyard at Watervale. This vineyard was planted in 1960 and has always been hand pruned and has never been irrigated. It only ever yields around 2 ton per acre which gives the wine a great depth of flavour. Every year when the Peppertree Shiraz is bottled Mitchell of Clare reserve a few barrels of the most full-bodied tannic material for their sparkling wine. The reserve wine is given another 2 - 3 years in barrel. The blend is then made from all the reserved vintages which now date back to the 1989 vintage. Then aim of this blending is to come up with a base wine showing as much complexity and maturity as possible. After blending the wine is bottle fermented and aged on lees for around 12 months, disgorged and topped with a little Shiraz ‘vintage port’ that was made in 1982.

Light, bright red; has an unexpected intensity to its spicy black cherry and bitter chocolate fruit, and the dosage is low. Great winter sparkling.

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
