Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine.

Majella Sparkling Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Coonawarra South Australia
The pick of Coonawarra Shiraz, treated to an extravagantly extended fermentation, for maximal uptake of dense, chocolatey purple fruit flavours, rakish colour and wickedly decadent chewy licorice textures, two years and more on gross sedimentery lees to infuse the wine with wanton richness, while taming and integrating the prodigal tannins. Eventually disgorged to true Methode traditionnelle, Majella is served with the ultimate indulgence, an inclusion of Reserve Vintage Coonawarra Port and dosage liqueur, crowned and resealed.

Majella originally established their Shiraz vineyards in the late 1960s after an understanding that the Hardy's Wine Company would source their production. By the 1980s, Majella were looking for other clients and their fruit wound up in some of the most memorable vintages of Wynns Coonawarra. The quality of Majella's harvest was always paramount but it was not until the 1990s that the pick of the Shiraz crop was set aside for a superior small batch sparkling. Bottle fermented for two or more years on sedimentery lees, followed by the traditional disgorgement, liqueur d’expédition and dosage of rare vintage Port.
Midnight purple hues, effervescence and persitence of elegant bead. Spiced liquorice nose, brambles and bright currants, suet and caraway, carob and cherry ripe. A powerful palate of intensely mouthfilling flavours, layers of fruit are supported by its luxurious creamyness, the savouryness of leather, smokey bacon, olive and espresso. Majella brings out the best in all good food, savoury or sweet, it drinks blissfully just on its own.
