Upon release d'Arenberg Peppermint Paddock Sparkling Chambourcin NV exhibits a deep appearance of vibrant black, crimson-purple mousse with a fine persistent bead that looks simply inviting.

The aroma is initially restrained but as it opens up the level of fruit richness and concentration becomes quite obvious. The aromas are dry, dominated with a mix of liquorice and spiced plum pudding notes with a sweet seductive array of small red berries such as mulberries and raspberries.

As the wine further opens up really super concentrated red fruit characters develop such as maraschino cherry, prune juice and boysenberry.

The palate is cool, rich and dry and extremely refreshing with an abundant red fruit flavours, mixed with dried herb notes and edges of tarry tannins and mineral-like acidity.

The finish is dry but with plenty of strong red fruit flavours that linger for some time, which is just what a wine with this sort of concentration should have.

Winery & Vintage Info

Psychedelic purple with a fine persistent bead. Spiced plums, dark cherry, and ripe red berries on the palate with a luscious, semi-sweet fruitiness that is incredibly enticing. Vibrant, fresh, and super delicious. Drink chilled.

The base wine is prepared using the time honoured techniques of open fermenting, foot treading and basket pressing. Addition of liqueur tirage instigates secondary fermentation and creates bubbles with a unique vibrant purple colour.

Surrounded by peppermint gums, the block was replanted in 1989 to Chambourcin from Shiraz which never grew well on that particular site. When the fruit is picked fully ripe it retains high levels of acidity, an abundance of colour, flavour and tannin - perfect for a sparkling red wine.

Delicious drinking now but this wine has the capacity to bottle age, in which the level of richness will increase as the fruit and tannins further combine. If drinking now, it works a treat with anything from a rich spicy dish such as a curry that has plenty of heat, or just on its own. Winery Notes
