Winery & Vintage Info

The production of “Méthode Traditionnelle” sparkling wines has been an integral part of the winemaking at Blue Pyrenees for many years.

The Sparkling Shiraz expresses its “terroir” or where it comes from better than any other Blue Pyrenees sparkling. Select parcels of Shiraz are nominated in the vineyard and winery for sparkling wine production due to displaying prominent varietal and regional characters along with soft tannins and restrained alcohol. The Pyrenees grape growing seasons are generally ideal for Shiraz, starting with winter rains, cool springs and summers, followed by warm autumns, perfect for ripening red grapes.

Approximately 5 days primary fermentation on skins in open fermenters, is followed by gentle pressing to tank and then racking off the yeast lees to small and large oak vats for 18 months oak maturation. Secondary bottle fermentation then occurs before another 1-2 years bottle maturation which allows integration of the fruit flavours, tannin, carbon dioxide and yeasty complexity. Winery Notes
