Expert Reviews

A 67/33% blend; very pale straw-green, and as crisp, tightly structured and textured as is expected from this wine. It will develop another leg with further time on cork. Rating 94 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2013)

"Petalumas sparkling wine from the Adelaide Hills is fresh and vibrant with wine citric bite and lemongrass tea tones. Baked bread complexity from maturation on lees is apparent and its steely, metallic acidity keeps things fresh on the palate as an easy drinking aperitif. "Rating 91 - Courier Mail, Alan Hunter (17/Aug/2013)

"The Petaluma Croser Vintage Piccadilly Valley 2010 is a fruit driven methode champenoise sourced from 67% pinot noir and 33% chardonnay from vines first planted by Brian Croser and Brian Fletcher in 1979. Perfect as an aperitif, it has hints of red berry fruits and biscuity aromas with creaminess on the palate finishing dry and crisp. "Mt Barker Courier (Australia), 01 May 13

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.
