A classic Australian style perfected at Romalo Cellars by the Walker family. Norman Walker learned the art of sparkling winemaking from his father Hurtle before passing his secrets

onto his son Nick, co-founder of O’Leary Walker. Combined, Norm and Hurtle have been at the forefront of Australia’s sparkling wine industry for over 100 years. In honour of Norm and Hurtle, this sparkling shiraz is named ‘Romalo’, after the cellars where they spent many years fine-tuning their craft.

This sparkling shiraz is aged in five-year-old French oak for two years before spending a further two years on tirage, developing beautiful complexity.

Colour

Deep red.

Bouquet

The bouquet shows great complexity of fruits and age, dominated by leather and chocolate notes that entice you back for more.

Palate

Rich and packed with flavour, this sparkling shiraz is perfectly balanced with fine tannins and acidity.

Ageing Potential

Perfect to enjoy now!

Vinification

After two years maturing in five-year-old French oak barriques and a further two years on tirage (yeast lees in individual bottles) this wine has developed beautiful complexity.
