Eight at the Gate Sparkling Shiraz
Wrattonbully, South Australia
Vegan Wine ✓
This Sparkling Shiraz is made from grapes sourced from vineyards on Australia’s lauded Limestone Coast and has the aroma of plums and Christmas spice. When it comes to the palate, this wine brings cherries and spice and is juicy with a hint of oak complexity. With all vintages chosen being exceptional vintages, the result is strong varietal characters making them perfect for a NV blend.
You’ll love the gorgeous purple foam which makes it so pretty in the glass and this wine should be served chilled. A real crowd pleaser, this refreshing and not too heavy shiraz is part of a limited quantity of sparkling wines produced in the famous wine region in Wrattonbully, South Australia.

Bright crimson purple
Plums, cherries and spicy fruitcake notes
Spicy cherry sauce and fruitcake balance well-rounded tannins and brisk acidity. Lusciously full, and juicy with a hint of oak complexity deliver an intense, lingering finish.
Half of this wine came from the current vintage with the remainder from previous vintages. The new vintage wine was fermented in a concrete open top fermenter.
The older wines were aged in French oak hogsheads for 2-3 years
