LANSDOWNE VINEYARD - IT'S NOT MY FAULT I LIKE BUBBLES SPARKLING PINOT ROSE
It’s the bottle you sneak in before you sneak out. It’s the bottle for Saturday sessions and Sunday brunch. It’s not just for life’s finer moments. It’s not my fault I like bubbles.
Fresh salmon-rose hue, with notes of strawberry and vanilla. Drawing you in with a fine persistent bead and smooth palate, then finishing crisp and dry – leaving lingering flavours of rose petal and cream.
Minimal intervention winemaking. Crushed and chilled to press with minimal skin contact. Cold fermentation in stainless steel.

MAKER Lansdowne Vineyard
GRAPES 100% Pinot Noir
Lansdowne is family owned and run – it's our life and passion. We believe that everything we put into our backyard can be seen in the glass, and we aim to reflect our small estate with care and integrity.
Lansdowne is our family home in the Adelaide Hills. Many years after the first grapes were grown we naturally progressed to making wines under our estate's name.
Early careers in traditional creative industries allowed us to approach wine differently. We were inspired to create wines that were refreshing for the eyes and palate.
Today the approach is still driven by creativity and change, with a focus on vineyard sustainability and a search for wines suited to Australian conditions.
Lansdowne Vineyard is one of the slowest ripening sites in the Adelaide Hills. It sits at 350 meters in the Forreston Valley and has a Mediterranean climate with cold wet winters, warm dry summers and endless autumns.
The day-night temperature range is a result of early sunsets and cool air pooled in the valley at night – a combination key to creating flavour complexity by slowing down the ripening process.
Pinot Noir was the first of the vines to be planted in 1994. We’ve been tending to the them since 2002 and are continuously working with new varieties, clones and practices to understand more about our terroir.
