From Rockford Cellar Door:
Our Sparkling Black Shiraz uses the time-honoured method of ageing quality
Shiraz in oak casks for many years prior to blending and bottle fermentation.
The result is softness, depth and complex flavours that are impossible to
duplicate in young wines. Although this wine can be enjoyed with many
different foods, a small band of appreciators tell us it is best enjoyed to kick
off celebrations on Christmas morning! Black Shiraz ensures that this very
Australian wine, nurtured by generations of winemakers, is never lost.
