"97 POINTS. Three years in barrel, then tiraged for time on lees, this disgorged Aug 2013. One of the best yet, its dosage is perfect, allowing the black fruits free rein on the long, harmonious finish. Has an indefinite future." (James Hallidays Australian Wine Guide)
At last we have been able to obtain a tiny allocation of this iconic Sparkling Shiraz from Rockford.
The base wine is matured in large old oak for three years before being tiraged, and then left on lees for a year before disgorgement and further cellaring prior to release. A sensational wine!
"It is a totally reliable, utterly seductive and uniquely Australian style.It has a long future." 96 points James Halliday's Australian Wine Guide.

JOSEPH Sparkling Red both defines and defies its genre: an iconic Australian unlike any of its peers. It confidently stands shoulder to shoulder with the world's classics, and therefore proudly holds top rank in my wine canon'. - Richard Hemming, jancisrobinson.com
96 points James Halliday Australian Wine Guide:"Every year a hogshead of Joseph Moda Amarone is added to the base wine, limiting the production to slightly less than 36 dozen bottles. It also means that the style is similar from one release to another, the appeal of the red and black fruit flavours universal." James Halliday
An Australian icon with dark, brooding opulence and layered complexity nurtured over many years. Creamy and fresh with a super fine bead, this is the modern history of Australian red wine in a bottle. The JOSEPH Sparkling Red is a unique blend of museum vintages from the last forty years combined with a barrel each of the ultra premium JOSEPH Moda Cabernet Merlot and Primo Estate Shiraz added every year since 1989.
After traditional fermentation in the bottle, the JOSEPH Sparkling Red rests on lees. It is then liqueured carefully to ensure a drier style and obtain a perfect balance.
