Daosa Blanc de Blancs 2012


Daosa Blanc de Blancs 2012

What do these icons mean?

A magnificent, top-end Australian sparkling, Champagne-style wine. The sharp acidity from partial malolactic fermentation has not been masked by a generous dosage, but is more effectively balanced by the delicate texture of the intertwined fine oak and lees, fleshing out the acid backbone to a lengthy finish. This wine will be improving in bottle with age for the next 20 years.

Type Champagne & Sparkling
Varietal(s) Chardonnay

The Wine Front – Piccadilly in Adelaide Hills is familiar turf for the sparkling wines of Australia, and, here Terre a Terre have taken a slow and considered approach to theirs from this place. Some oak maturation lends complexity, as does the 60-plus months on lees. There ya go. Attractive, richer scents of honey on buttered toast, lemon curd, a whiff of Parisian almonds. The palate is soft but still holds the same sense of richness of the bouquet, but there’s a crisp, green apple freshness underlying. It’s quite understated, but really attractive in that way. The finish is a clincher, alive with tickly, mineral-like feel and a light chalky pucker. Classy stuff.


World Wine – Pale gold and exceptional bead. A highly complex style with powerful French pastry, and nutty complexity underling bright pristine green apple fruits. Classic tight, focused high acid style – juicy and taut that evolves layer after layer in the glass. Gorgeous fine and long, and the best yet under this label.
