1 - 3 of 3 Wines By Croser
1
Croser Late Disgorged
Adelaide Hills
Available in cartons of six
Croser is only disgorged after ten years repose in bottle under the Petaluma wineworks, ensuring extended contact on yeast lees, which contributes to the extravagance and luxurious palate weight. Fashioned from elite parcels of fruit grown to the finest vineyards in Piccadilly Valley, Croser is at once bigger in colour and more intense in flavour, dominated by the ripe jonathon apple of Pinot Noir. Grapes grown to the cooler south and west facing slopes contribute impressive natural fruit acids which infuse the wine with exquisite flavours and dazzling aromas.

In choosing the Piccadilly Valley to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, winemaker Brian Croser recognised the requirement of a cool environment to achieve the acid and finesse of flavour which are the hallmarks of superior sparkling wines fruit. The vineyards were the first planted in the Piccadilly valley. These cooler vineyard sites produce moderate sugar, high acid Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the substance of Croser.

Hand picked Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are chilled and pressed as whole bunches. Only the heart run juice is collected for Croser and no additives are used in the winemaking process. Croser matures on yeast lees before remuage and disgorging.

Croser is only disgorged when there is market demand which ensures extended contact with the yeasts that preserves the wines freshness and contributes a wonderful yeastiness. The pristine flavours, defining acidity and elegant fruit structure set Croser apart as one of Australia's few aperitif style sparkling wines.
