Daoso Natural Reserve Sparkling Piccadilly Valley NV

In just one small sticker, the key components of this sparkling wine are communicated incredibly effectively. Here it is:

Transparency in labelling benefits both wine producers and consumers. Although the words chosen are the French ones, we swifly learn:

Cepages (grape varieties): 82% pinot noir and 18% chardonnay

Vintages: 81% from 2017 and 19% reserve wine

Tirage (commencement of secondary fermentation in bottle): January 2018

Disgorge (removal of lees from wine): July 2019 (18 months)

Method of production (elsewhere on label): traditional method.

Region: Piccadilly Valley (in the Adelaide Hills)

This approach is to be commended. In the glass, the wine has a refined aroma of strawberries and yeast.  The palate is dry with a delicate, creamy mousse and refreshing, high acidity.  This is a high quality sparkling wine that is ready to drink now.  Rating: Very Good.  Website: https://terreaterre.com.au; wine-searcher.com.  Source: Sample.  Reviewed: September 2020.
