Peter Forrestal 'Quaff 2010'.
On the international wine stage the Emeri has come up trumps against the likes of:

Shingleback Sparkling Shiraz NV ($20).
Deep red with purple hues and dark berry and raspberry fruit aromas, the palate has delicious fresh berry flavours, soft silky tannins and a fine persistent bead with a dry finish.
Shiraz for this wine is picked at optimum maturity to ensure maximum flavour and soft, balanced tannins. Fermentation is completed mostly in tank with a small percentage of wine included that has been fermented in bottle to add complexity. The wine is aged in a mixture of American oak barrels and on tank staves for a period of time ranging from 3 weeks to 8 months.
