Willows Vineyard "The Doctor" Sparkling Shiraz NV 14.0% 6x75

Price: 215.00


BEST SPARKLING WINE Barossa Wine Show 2017
"95 points. Tirage bottled and left on lees for 19 months. This is towards the upper end of the Barossa Valley sparkling shorazs led by Rockford's Black shiraz. It has depth, complexity and great balance, mouthfeel, all the black fruits doing the work, not the high dosage." James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion

Made from 100% Shiraz, this wine is named to honour the five generations of Scholz "Doctors" that have worked and lived on the family property since 1845. A blend of vintages for complexity, the average age of the base wine is 5 years.

Fermented in this bottle by traditional methods, it gains its yeast complexity from 19 months on yeast lees. The wine is liquered back to 18g/l residual sugar to enhance the finish. A truly Australian style showing rich black fruits and chocolate with gentle tannins from shiraz, complex yeast characters, yet maintaining a soft, long palate.

"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,
96 points James Halliday Australian Wine Guide:"The grand complexity of Joseph meets every expectation of its deep and complex recipe, capturing all the depth and character of McLaren Vale cabernet, merlot and shiraz young and old. A deep purple hue heralds a universe of expansive complexity, spanning primary black plum and black cherry fruit, secondary roast nuts, dark chocolate and coffee and the tertiary allure of black olives. Another great in the grand lineage of Joseph." 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.
