Region Coonawarra

Coonawarra

The first vines were planted in Coonawarra by John Riddoch in 1890, however it was not until the renewed interest in table wine production in the 1950's that Coonawarra was brought into the limelight. Located almost 380 km southeast of Adelaide, Coonawarra is today one of the most famous red wine regions in Australia. Its weathered limestone terra rossa soils, avaibility of water and relatively cool maritime climate make it a unique viticultural region. Extremely flat and unprotected, Coonawarra is exposed both to the swinging influences of the cool Great Southern Ocean and hot, dry northerly winds. Spring frosts also pose a major threat with the potential to wipe out entire crops. Mechanical harvesting is widely employed in the region although smaller producers prefer to tend their vines by hand. Coonawarra is best known for classically-styled Cabernet Sauvignon, although in good years, Shiraz from the region is also very compelling.

Winery PETALUMA

Established by Brian Croser in the late 1970's, Petaluma captured the imagination of the wine world and forged a path towards defining sub-regionality in Australia. Croser pioneered the idea of distinguished vineyard site in Australia, a variation of the French concept of terroir. Today with winemaker Andrew Hardy at the helm, Petaluma produces an extensive range of quality wines from selected vineyard sites across the sub-regions of South Australia that capture the expression of both the variety and the individual site. Croser is Petaluma’s premium sparkling wine range, comprising a Non Vintage (NV), a Rosé, a Vintage and a Late Disgorged style. All Croser sparkling wines are traditional method styles employing the classic varieties of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
