This wine is made following the principles of our Method ClassicTM. It is a pure expression of sparkling Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay with ripe stone fruit characters, fine bead, texture and long finish. DAOSA Blanc de Blancs is recognised as one of the top Australian sparkling wines.

The Bizot vineyard is located in Summertown, in the heart of Piccadilly Valley sub-region in the Adelaide Hills, and is one of the highest vineyards in the valley at 550m altitude. It was planted by Petaluma in 1995/1996 for DAOSA with Chardonnay. It was planted with several clones, including French “Burgundy” clones 76, 95, 96 and 277. It is also one of the first Australian vineyards to have been planted using rootstocks in part of the vineyard. The soil is red clay and sandy loams over a 70 million year old shale rock formation. The Chardonnay is planted on a north-north east facing slope, at a relatively high density of 3,200 vines per hectare.
