An Australian icon with dark, brooding opulence and layered complexity. With museum vintages dating back to the 60's, this really is the history of Australian wine in a bottle. Varietal - Shiraz, Cabernet & Fortified Blend
To create the JOSEPH Sparkling Red a hogshead of the ultra premium JOSEPH Moda Cabernet Merlot from every year since 1991 and Primo Estate Shiraz from 1989 is added to a unique blend of museum vintages from the past 40 years. A tirage is completed only every 18-24 months, ensuring the base wine retains it’s unique character derived from the aged wines in the blend. After traditional fermentation in the bottle, the 2012 JOSEPH Sparkling Red disgorgement is rested on yeast lees for 18 months before hand disgorgement. It was liqueured carefully with a blend of aged Australian fortified wines to ensure a savoury style with perfect balance.
