Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

A blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, Croser is a refined, aperitif style that is a reflection of the Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills. The palate is richly textured with a wonderfully fine and creamy bead, a Croser hallmark.

Winemaking Note

Handpicked bunches were chilled for 48 hours in small trays before whole bunch pressing extracting the delicate heart run juice of the grapes. The juice was fermented in a selection of old Vosges barriques with Petaluma's own selected yeast strain prior to a partial malolactic femerntation. Blending took place in October with selected parcels of base wines 66% Pinot Noir and 34% Chardonnay.

After 2 years on yeast lees the 2008 Crose was disgorged with a dosage of 7gpl residual sugar.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The unique Piccadilly Valley, 25 minutes from Adelaide behind Mount Lofty, is a cool, high rainfall viticultural region, climatically ideal for the production of Croser.

The Piccadilly Valley was chosen based on the belief that selected cool sites in the valley would produce Pinot Noir and Chardonnay of moderate sugar, high acid and finesse of flavour. Croser matures on yeast lees in the cool cellars of the Bridgewater Mill for two years before remuage and disgorging. The pristine flavours, defining acidity and elegant fruit structure sets Croser apart as one of Australia’s few aperitif style sparkling wines.

Croser is an age-worthy wine so each year a small proportion of each vintage is held back and allowed to mature for ten years prior to release. Croser Proprietors Reserve wines are identified by a red strip entwined in the cigar band, which guarantees the wine has been stored on lees at Petaluma’s sparkling cellars and disgorged prior to re-release to ensure freshness.
