Silentium Sparkling Shiraz
Sparkling Shiraz is a Barossa classic. It’s the official breakfast wine of the Barossa and favourite holiday season and celebration go-to. Our Sparkling Shiraz is crafted in the traditional method, only in select years. We’re proud to include 2012 Silentium Sparkling Shiraz in our current vintage range, as 2012 was a standout year for reds across the Valley.
2012 Silentium Sparkling Shiraz was created from select barrels from the Lotties Vineyard, which were set aside to age in oak for three years. They were individually bottle-fermented then aged on yeast lees for two and a half years in the traditional méthode champenoise. This vintage is an outstanding example of Barossa Sparkling Shiraz, that has a heady aroma of fresh boysenberry, vanilla and spice followed by a bright, lively, mousse-like palate that sings with plum. The finish is warm and well rounded, and you’ll detect notes of fresh strawberry.
Is there a better way to welcome in the summer than a Barossa Valley Sparkling Shiraz themed brunch? Or perhaps you’d rather kick off your next garden party or family dinner with this wine. It’s gorgeous served with fresh oysters or your favourite chocolate.

Wyndham’s Silentium Spiders
Here is one of our absolute favourite desserts, it’s completely decadent and yet it takes just a few seconds to prepare.
1. Get some of the absolute best quality chocolate ice cream you can find.
2. Place a generous scoop in the fanciest glass you have to hand.
3. Pour over Silentium Sparkling Shiraz.
The final product is similar to a spider, but grown-up, elegant and knockout delicious. This is one of the most crowd-pleasing desserts we serve.
The best ice cream to use is, of course, homemade, but if you’re in Adelaide and in the market for a high-quality scoop, we recommend Bottega Gelateria Dutch Chocolate.
