The JOSEPH Sparkling Red base wine contains a unique blend of museum vintages from the last forty years combined with a hogshead of the ultra-premium JOSEPH Moda Cabernet
Merlot from every year since 1991 and Primo Estate Shiraz dating back to 1989.
A tirage is only completed every 18-24 months, ensuring the base wine retains its unique character derived from the aged wines in the blend.
After traditional fermentation in the bottle, the 2016 JOSEPH Sparkling Red disgorgement rested on yeast lees for 24 months before hand disgorgement. It was liquored carefully with a blend of aged Australian fortified wines to ensure a savoury style with perfect balance.
The JOSEPH Sparkling Red has to be the ultimate Christmas indulgence or addition to a dinner party.
