Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

To make good sparkling shiraz you need to start with a good shiraz base wine. The Thomson family at Best's Great Western have long been famous for their highly regarded still Shiraz wine, particularly the Bin 0. Here Shiraz grapes from the Grampians regions are vinified into a based wine, including more than a year in oak barrels before going through the same traditional method that is used to produce Cremant and Champagne. The result is a richly black fruit, bubbly red wine where the scouring effect of the bubbles provides a great balance to the grainy tannins. Gently sweet due to dosage with liqueur muscat, this is a great winter wine that can also be cellared to develop leathery complexity. This is a benchmark example of an Australian classic.
