Chardonnay Pinot Noir Semillon Barossa South Australia
Cockatoo Ridge is headquartered in the Barossa Valley on the principal road between the two main Barossa towns of Tanunda and Nuriootpa. This high profile site was once the old Hardy's Siegersdorf winery, built in 1930. Cockatoo Ridge NV is blended between two or three years harvest to provide consistency, reliability and a rounded flavour. An internationally recognizable Aussie Sparkler, it carries a trademark pink hue which delivers a broad palate, flavoursome and fruit driven. A deliciously reliable Sparkling wine with complexity and depth of flavour.
The Cockatoo Ridge winery was renovated to accomodate the traditional triage bottle fermenting of sparkling wine. The philosophy at Cockatoo is to craft fruit driven everyday wines with complexity and flavour, that are tops in their class. Long established expertise in viticultural practices and a vigorous planting program have been implemented at the Cockatoo Ridge vineyards, whilst the steady growth in demand for this popular sparkler has been met by the sourcing of premium grapes from growers who are contracted to meet strict quality standards. Bottle fermentation and a handsome resting on lees provides both the natural effervescence and the soft, creaminess desirable in sparkling wine.
Lemon peach hues, persistent mousse. Bouquet of stonefruits, ripe melons, yeast cakes and sweet toastyness. A complex dry, full flavoured palate, layers of creamy fruit flavours and textural effervescence, its perfect acidity delivering a long refreshing finish. This wine is not only delightful and pretty to look at, but it offers a robust palate the tickles with stonefruits and the tang of summer punch.
