Daosa Natural Reserve NV - Adelaide Hills
Bottle size: 750ml
This is the fourth release of our DAOSA Natural Réserve from our Piccadilly
Valley vineyards. This wine is a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blend, made
following the principles of our Method ClassicTM. The wine shows classic
Pinot Noir characters with subtle strawberry notes and ripe Chardonnay fruit
on the middle palate, tempered by a fine bead and a beautiful complexity and
length from the Réserve wines. A classic example of Australian sparkling wine,
made in the traditional method.
This is quite simply one of the best sparkling wines in Australia.
The Bizot vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley was planted by Petaluma in 1995/1996 with Chardonnay. It was
planted with several clones, including French "Burgundy" clones 76, 95 and 96. It is also one of the first
Australian vineyards to have been planted using rootstocks (in part of the vineyard). The Bizot vineyard is in the heart of Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills and is one of the highest vineyards in the valley at 500-550m altitude. The soil is red clay and sandy loams over a 70-million-year-old shale rock formation. The Chardonnay is planted on a north-north east facing slope.
The Summertown Vineyard was planted by Charles “Chilly” Hargrave in 1987 mostly with Pinot Noir. It is also high altitude at 500M, and its East facing slopes are ideal to grow Pinot Noir for Sparkling wine.
The climate in the Piccadilly Valley has a long-term average of 1,172 degree days during the growing season.
Yearly rainfall is approximately 1,100mm. The terroir in the higher slopes of the Piccadilly Valley makes it ideal for the production of Sparkling wine using the méthode traditionnelle.
