Culloden NV Shiraz Cuvée
The McLeish Estate Sparkling Range commemorates The Battle of Culloden that took place on Culloden Moor, (a short drive outside Inverness), on 16 April 1746. It was the final battle of the 1745 Jacobite Rising and the last battle to be held on British soil.
The rich fruity aroma has hints of spice and clove. With a relatively low sugar dosage for sparkling red, this wine has an abundance of berry and fruit characters on the front palate. This gives the initial impression of sweetness followed by berry and stewed fruit fills the mid palate. The wine finishes with some leathery tannins and a touch of pepper to balance the initial sweetness sensation. The balance of acid and tannins are soft but give a dry finish which lingers. The generosity of flavours makes this an easy drinking sparkling red.
Cuisine: Duck with Raspberries, Turkey and Cranberry sauce- this is truly the best Christmas drink!
