Wine tasting notes

The majority of our customers have discovered Tilley’s Wines through their search for the Vixen! This sparkling red has a huge following in the UK and of course in its homeland Australia. It is made in the same way as Champagne with the second fermentation taking place in the bottle. This is no cheap fizzy plonk but a serious game changer when it comes to sparkling wines. We like to always include the Vixen on tastings to see how many sparkling red converters we can make and we have a near 100% success rate. By way of a tasting note it is a powerful wine rich and soft in texture. The silky palate oozes sweet mixed berry conserve, ‘rum and raisin’, white chocolate & spicy vanillin oak finished with a balanced explosion of spice, crisp acid and soft elegant tannin length.
