Schild 2016 Sparkling Shiraz Barossa Valley, Australia
Hues of deep ruby, and purple. The nose shows a fragrant and fruit forward with notes of blackcurrant, mulberry and dark cherry aromas alongside more delicate hints of chocolate, spice and roasted coffee bean all adding a supporting richness and interest. Complex dark berry fruits and rich chocolate on the palate work in harmony with a round creamy texture and soft supporting tannin profile. Refreshing mid palate acidity provides the important framework which cuts through the balanced sweetness and leads into a long and clean savoury finish.
