Spring has sprung and it’s the perfect time to enjoy a bottle of fizz. If you’ve traditionally shopped the big names in sparkling, let us encourage you to plunge into an emerging wave of small grower producers, including Woodsoak Wines. Their in-house Pinot Noir Chardonnay, Zaahira Sparkling NV ($19) will quickly get your attention.
The medal winning wine is produced from grapes grown on the Legoe family property, Woodsoak. The farm has been in the family for 60 years and is located in the picturesque Robe Wine Region of South Australia. Zaahria Sparkling is meticulously blended and as a consequence embodies the Hindu definition of its name – brilliant and shining!
Zaahira is blush in colour and best described as irresistibly fun and delicious, voluminous yet graceful, lively and did we mention absolutely delicious? It offers an enticing fragrant mix of red fruit including fresh strawberry, mulberry, pomegranate and poached rhubarb. The finish is soft in the mouth with a refreshing crisp citrus backbone ensuring the longevity of the wine.
The Charmat wine fermentation process employed by Woodsoak Wine achieves the unmistakable balance of flavour, aroma, elegance and consistency found in the Zaahira (Sparkling) NV.
But it’s not just sparkling you’ll find at Woodsoak – they also produce Santi Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Mayur Chardonnay, Rani Rose, Pyaar Pinot Noir and Raj Shiraz. Soil, aspect and mild maritime climate, along with the long and gentle growing season are attributes leading to the production of highly aromatic wines with intense vibrant colours and richly developed fruit flavours.
