RED LETTER DAY - SPARKLING RED

$30.00 - On Sale

We are thrilled to be able to offer our new sparkling red this month. We have named the wine Red Letter Day, because, although we love the style, we have been able to produce a sparkling red only intermittently over the past 30 years. So to be able to make one – and make it available – is a “red letter day”. I produced my first sparkling red in the early 1980s.

At that stage, although I loved the style, it was becoming increasingly hard to find, with Seppelts being the last large producer on the shelves. I, along with a few other small producers,decided not to let this iconic style of the Australian wine industry fizzle and die out, particularly since this style is uniquely Australian. I am not aware of anyone else around the world putting full-bodied red wines through the champagne process.

Because making sparkling reds is a lengthy and expensive process, we are listing this wine at $32 per bottle.

To celebrate putting this high-quality sparkling red onto the market, we are offering it to you at $27 per bottle.

This is a greater than 15% saving.
