This sparkling Shiraz displays a vibrant lush garnet color and a bouquet of rich berry fruits, dark cherries and soft lingering hints of integrated oak. On the palate bright juicy red fruits and sweet plum are balanced with silky tannins and a velvety smooth finish.
Benjamin Hammerschlag’s family arrived in the States from Germany in the late 1800’s. His great-great grandfather married a young girl by the name of Flegenheimer and joined her family’s business as New York Wine Merchants
From Brooklyn to Yonkers, Hoboken to Newark, Flegenheimer Bros dealt exclusively in quality beverages. The business was established in 1876 and was still flourishing in 1919 when the manufacture, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages was outlawed in the United States through Prohibition.
Three generations later, the youngest Hammerschlag has decided to resurrect this heritage with wines of excellence from Australia.
96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from premium Shiraz vineyards throughout South Australia.
Aged for 2 year old fine grain American oak. Charmat method is used to provide bubbles.
The bubbles magnify the blueberry and cherry fruit in the NV Out of the Park Sparkling Shiraz. It's a fun, fruit-forward bubbly that's fairly dry, picking up attractive hints of dark chocolate on the finish. I like to serve these sorts of wines at brunches or while standing around the grill, predinner.
