NV Jansz Tasmania Premium Cuvée
60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. Fermented in a combination of steel tanks and oak barrels. Undergoes full Malolactic Fermentation. Aged for 24 months on the lees in a combination of steel tanks, Hogsheads (large barrels) and bottle.
Specially selected and crafted individual batches from cool climate locations in Tasmania form this wine. Every site used to source grapes is specifically designated to growing fruit for sparkling wine.
Very pale gold in color, with a persistent fine mousse. The nose displays aromas of honeysuckle, citrus zest and fresh strawberries from the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit. Extended time on lees during secondary fermentation contributes more complex aromas of nougat and roasted nuts. The palate is well balanced with delicate fruit flavor, fine creamy texture and a refreshing natural acid drive. The finish is dry and fresh with lingering flavors of citrus and nougat
93 points & Editor's Choice, Wine Enthusiast. "The latest nonvintage from Australia's most famous Tasmanian sparkling producer is a tasty drop at a bargain price. This bottling combines fruit from the north and south of the island. Eighteen months on lees results in a bubbly that is mostly fruit driven—lemon, apple and pear—with the yeast-derived brioche notes serving as a backdrop."
