SKU: PETCROSERNV
Croser was created as it was believed that the right region in Australia could produce sparkling wine to rival Champagne. That region is Piccadilly in the Adelaide Hills. The first vintage of Croser was released in 1985 and the winemaking philosophy continues today starting in the vineyard where all the vines are hand pruned, the grapes hand picked, the fruit whole bunch pressed, and the wines hand crafted in the traditional method. As is the tradition with non vintage Champagne, this wine is a blend of the current vintage Croser with reserve wine from several older vintages, with each vintage adding distinctive qualities to the final blend. Croser Non Vintage stays true to the aperitif style of Vintage Croser, showcasing a rich, full blend of pinot noir and chardonnay from selected sites in the cool climate Piccadilly Valley and other parts of the Adelaide Hills.

Palate

Nectarine, cashews and biscuity characters, the backbone of the Croser Non Vintage palate, with the Pinot Noir providing a fine mousse and strawberry fruit lift

”Amazingly this is a Traditional Method wine that's spent a minimum of 18 months on lees, its cuvée 64% pinot noir, 35% chardonnay and a 1% of “other” variety. Its dosage is 10g/L and it shows with a sweeter fruit sense, though a slight tonic bitterness in the finish cuts that, and a bit of length as well.”
– Tony Love
