No information on varietal contribution, nor time on lees, or if it is made in the traditional method. Pale pink; the strawberry-accented flavours are totally delicious, and the dosage is relatively low. On a hedonic scale, this is the best of the three Croser releases.

57% pinot noir, 41% chardonnay, 2% 'other'. 12 months on lees. Strawberry and apple characters power through the palate in thoroughly seductive style. It packs a punch in a good way. Campbell Mattinson Published 17 June 2021

Tasting Notes

Croser NV Rose has a residual sugar of 11gpl which balances the high natural acidity of this wine. The wine has a rich creamy mousse and layers of complexity with aromas of raspberries, strawberries and pomegranates combining with the biscuity, nutty brioche finish. A perfect aperitif wine, made in the renowned Croser style.

Winemakers Note

Croser Non-Vintage Rose is a perfect partner to the Croser Non – Vintage Sparkling wine. A blend of 100% Pinot Noir fruit sourced from selected cool climate vineyards across the Adelaide Hills and combined with several back vintage reserve wines of Pinot Noir delivers a sophisticated Methode traditionelle Rose Sparkling. Fruit for this wine was harvested after our Pinot Noir for Vintage Croser to allow the fruit to develop some riper flavours and aromas adding to its complexity. The Pinot Noir is whole bunch pressed or crushed with free run juice kept separate. After settling the juice is fermented in a combination of 80% stainless steel, with 20% fermented in old oak barriques for added complexity. In addition to this a small portion of approximately one tonne is fermented on skins and added in at blending to deliver a wine with a delicate pink hue. Post blending and tirage the rose is aged in bottle on yeast for at least 12 months. During disgorging a small amount of Pinot Noir is combined with the dosage liqueur to balance the wines natural acidity and enhance the pink intensity.
