The Willows Vineyard 'THE DOCTOR' NV Sparkling Shiraz Disgorged May 2017 200 dozen made

Made from 100% Shiraz, this wine is named to honour the five generations of Scholz ""Doctors” that have worked and lived on the family property since 1845. A blend of vintages for complexity, the average age of the base wine is 5 years.

Fermented in this bottle by traditional 'methode champenoise', it gains its yeast complexity from 19 months on yeast lees. The wine is liquered back to 18g/l residual sugar to enhance the finish. A truly Australian style showing rich black fruits and chocolate with gentle tannins from shiraz, complex yeast characters, yet maintaining a soft, long palate.
