Just three words describe the thinking behind Jansz Tasmania. Time. Patience. Discipline. The wine embraces all three in equal measure. Time, patience and discipline spent nurturing the vines and their precious fruit. Time, patience and discipline awaiting the perfect moment for picking. Time, patience and discipline in the winery as years are devoted to making the wine with painstaking care and attention. The vineyards lie in the Tamar Valley along the Northern Tasmanian route at the heart of Tasmania’s Pipers River region, an area known worldwide as “Sparkling Tasmania”. With a mantle of red basalt soils and a cool climate moderated by its close proximity to the ocean, it is ideal for the slow ripening of fruit and lingering acidity so essential to the production of premium sparkling wine.
The wine is pale gold in colour with a very fine persistent bead. The nose is wonderfully complex; with lifted savoury notes of sea spray and lanolin, balanced with those of ripe lemons and delicate strawberries. The Five years of yeast aging has enriched the nose with aromas of brioche, shortbread and cream. The palate is balanced. It flaunts powerful yet elegant fruit flavours, showing honeysuckle, rose petals and strawberry juxtaposed with complex notes of oyster shell and truffle. The result is a layered and textural wine that can only be achieved through extended aging on yeast. The natural acidity typical of this vineyard provides elegance and longevity to this wine.
