- When Naked asked us if we could create a ‘Sparkling Shiraz’, we were delighted to rise to the challenge. Although it had to be a ‘Sparkling Syrah’ as its roots are firmly in France!
- We picked the grapes early so that the wine would be deliciously soft and fruity with a fabulous deep opaque colour. It's just bursting with delicious fresh red fruits.
- This is an extremely exclusive small batch production and possibly one of a kind, we know of no other southern French Sparkling Syrah. So if you're intrigued by the sound of a sparkling red, now's your time to grab a taste!

Sam and I were chatting about our harvests during last year's Tasting Tour. I had a brooding beast of a Shiraz which needed to be tamed. Sam mentioned that he had a delicate, elegant high altitude Shiraz that was missing a bit of grunt! The idea was born…
Thanks to the support of Angels, we were able to make it a reality. The result is a full bodied yet vibrant Shiraz, packed with juicy red fruits, violet and blackcurrants and a lovely touch of vanilla and spice.
It's not often a wine brings together two winemakers, two vineyards, and two different approaches to winemaking, to create a new and harmonious blend. We really hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we enjoyed making it!
