Very pale gold with an exceptionally fine bead. Intense and intriguing aromas of oyster shell, preserved lemon and truffles with notes of toasted brioche. The palate is precise and defined with layers of citrus, preserved lemon and lemon curd overlaid with toasted hazelnut nougat. It displays exquisite balance between the fine, creamy texture arising from extended time on tirage and a long drive of chalky, mineral acidity. This elegant, hand crafted wine expresses terroir and variety in its purest form. A very limited batch of just 2,772 bottles was crafted. Serve with pan-seared chicken breast, shallots and asparagus.
The Jansz Tasmania vineyard enjoys a cool climate almost identical to France’s Champagne region. In fact, it was originally with French contribution that Jansz became Tasmania’s first sparkling made using the traditional méthode champenoise. Today it’s called, Méthode Tasmanoise. It’s the essence of a unique partnership between the environment and our winemaker. It’s why Jansz Tasmania is the most highly regarded sparkling wine house in Australia. It’s cool climate art.
