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. 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.
93 POINTS - James Halliday "A complex wine; its fine bead lasts for some time, with cashew/almond notes on the bouquet, shifting to include grapefruit and green apple on the long, perfectly balanced palate. Traditional method, hand-picked pinot noir and chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills, aged on yeast lees in the bottle for 12 months; disgorged and bottled on demand." James Halliday’s Top 100 features in The Weekend Australian Magazine on November 20.
