Foods

The Battle Axe is ideal with aperitifs and most definitely is not limited to special occasions.

Oak

Subtle use of oak.

Colour

Ruby red.

Nose

This wine shows excellent integration of Shiraz fruit with dark fruits and mixed spice.

Palate

Aiming for style and profile, the wine offers luscious layers of spice and dark berry fruits, balanced with a peppery undercurrent. The wine style is lovely in nature, soft yet complex and chilling it brings out the natural sweetness from vintage fortified.

Background

It's fair to say this McLaren Vale Sparking Shiraz has been in the pipeline for a very long time, with the preparation starting 10 years ago. Just like Ben's beautiful mother-in-law, who he fondly refers to as ?The Battle Axe', the sparkling wine has aged beautifully, and certainly hasn't lost any of its prettiness or striking features. She loves Sparkling Shiraz so here it is. Following traditions unique to our region, this sparkling builds its base from mature, developed Mclaren Vale Shiraz and is combined with a tiny batch of older Grenache that gives it both lift and spice. This is then finished off with a small batch of fortified vintage Shiraz from Ben's prized Piebald Vineyard, which brings the subtle sweetness to an otherwise rich and complex wine.
