NV ‘Special Release’ Sparkling Shiraz

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion – Tasted 13 Mar 2012

Rating 90/100

Every year Pondalowie keeps aside one or two barrels of shiraz to produce a multi-vintage cuvee for this sparkling wine that is aged on yeast lees for 12 months before disgorgement. In best Pondalowie style, it is generous and full-flavoured, although it does lose its CO2 quite quickly.

Screwcap. Alc: 14%. Drink by: 2013.
