Jansz Premium Brut Region Tasmania Australia Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier Sparkling Tasmania NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasmania, you ask? We answer: Why not? The island lies off the south coast of Australis, where it's cooler with lots of sea breeze--remember the geography is "reversed"). A fine spot for sparklers, of which, this is quite nice."Light, tight and vibrant, with creamy baked bread aromas and flavors around a bright core of lemon and pear fruit, finding a welcome balance on the lithe, sparkling finish."Wine Spectator

In the northeast corner of Australia's southern island state is a wine region so perfect for creating sparkling wine that it has captured the interest of world-renowned Champagne houses such as Louis Roederer of Reims, France, who believed that the climate of the area was ideal for the production of finely structured méthode champenoise and helped establish the vineyard that would become Jansz Tasmania. The Hill Smith family shared the belief and purchased Jansz from Pipers Brook Vineyard in 1998. With a climate very close to that of Champagne, this region is known simply as 'Sparkling Tasmania'. The Jansz vineyards lie in the Tamar Valley at the heart of Tasmania’s Pipers River region - the very centre of 'Sparkling Tasmania'. With a mantle of red basalt soils and a cool climate moderated by the proximity of Bass Strait, the Jansz Tasmania vineyards are ideal for allowing grapes to ripen slowly and develop the lingering acidity essential to produce a premium sparkling wine. Under the Hill Smith family guidance, Jansz Tasmania has evolved to become known as the benchmark Australian sparkling wine. For the fourth time in six years, Jansz Tasmania Premium Vintage Cuvée has been chosen as the Nation’s celebratory wine – an unprecedented achievement. Established in 1993 by the National Australia Day Council and Sydney International Wine Competition, this Award represents the “best of Australia”. To qualify for this honour, Jansz Tasmania Premium Vintage Cuvée 2004 first received the Sydney International Wine Competition trophy for “Best Australian Sparkling Wine – Apéritif Style” 2009.

One of my favourite sparkling whites, it doesn't have that 'cringey' feeling you get when you drink some other varieties.

Light, tight and vibrant, with creamy baked bread aromas and flavors around a bright core of lemon and pear fruit, finding a welcome balance on the lithe, sparkling finish.--Harvey Steiman Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tasmania in Australia. N.V. Jansz Brut Cuvee 750ml

The crisp, elegant, fresh, medium-bodied non-vintage Brut Cuvee (51% Chardonnay, 46% Pinot Noir, and 3% Pinot Meunier) reveals hints of brioche, ripe apple skins, grapefruits, and Wheat Thins along with good effervescence and persistence. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tasmania in Australia. N.V. Jansz Brut Cuvee 750ml

Bright green-straw; the Tasmanian acidity immediately proclaims its preserve giving the wine freshness fine citrus fruit and great length along with nutty/bready nuances. James Halliday.

A blend of 53% Chardonnay and 47% Pinot Noir undergoing 100% malo-lactic and aged for 24 months on lees the NV Jansz Cuvee Non Vintage has a citrusy nose of lemongrass and orange peel over notes of baking bread straw and chalk dust. This brut style has fine frisky bubbles and crisp acid that is nicely matched against a small amount of dosage (9 grams per liter) finishing long and zesty. Drinking now it should remain fresh and vibrant for 2-3 years+.--Lisa Perotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine
