About The Wine

Campbell Mattinson once called this "a treasure of Australian wine."

Given the maker and the majority of the vineyard source, that would seem all but _fait accompli_. Half of the vines that produce this wine are the fabled Shiraz vines planted at Wendouree in 1919. The wine is made by Stephen George, iconic wine pioneer of the Adelaide Hills.

If you like Sparkling Shiraz, they just don't get much better than this. It's every ounce the quintessential Australian wine you would think it to be. Rich and opulent with stacks of fruit rolled into a classy framework.

It's gorgeous drinking, and in the context of a wine of this pedigree, it's outstanding value to boot.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The 2013 Sparkling Shiraz is drawn from the Clare Valley from grapes of dry grown, low yielding vines, half of which were planted in 1919. Following ageing in old oak for four years the base wine was re-fermented in bottle, creating an exceptional sparkling wine that balances power with finesse. Drink now or cellar for further complexity. Serve chilled.

    Wendouree Shiraz with Bubbles

    Wow, this is awesome shiraz bubbly. Very much reminds me of a superb Wendouree shiraz - but chilled and sparkling - making it perfect enjoyment during an Aussie summer. Complex, refined, elegant with impeccable balance, finishing long and crisp. While not cheap, good value for a wine of this calibre.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
