Croser Petaluma Sparkling Wine 2004
Vintage Sparkling Wine from South Australia, Australia
The Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills allows for full ripening of the grapes even in cooler vintages. As a result Croser Vintage is always the product of a single vintage ensuring an elegant, aperitif style sparkling wine.
Australian Wine Companion - "Fragrant flowery blossom and brioche aromas; a long, citrussy/tangy palate; dry finish."
Wine Spectator - "This sparkling wine strikes a welcome balance between richness of texture and lively acidity, offering flavors that span the spectrum from pear and lime to toast and espresso, all of it lingering on the expressive finish. 500 cases imported."

About South AustraliaMcLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley, South Australia produces some of the finest red wines of the country, and some say in the world. White wines gain their reputation from the distinctive Rieslings of Clare Valley and Eden Valley.
About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
