This wine had an average score of 8
I would have to personally say that this is the best sparkling shiraz I have ever had.
2005 Peregrine Ridge Winemakers Reserve Sparkling Heathcote Shiraz Late Disgorge is exemplary and intense in every way and certainly preceded a great range of wines.
A wine of pure intensity, ripe choc berry flavours, leathery development, lovely oak integration and the piercing line of fizz driving through the palate.
The length was long and lasting and really highlighted how good Heathcote is for shiraz, and the purity of regional expression over time.
Here are some comments:
“Very nice blend – worth the money”
“Full of grape flavour, sweet tastes similar to a straight shiraz as opposed to a sparkling”
“Best I’ve tasted – not too sweet”
