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.
Pale gold in colour with a fine bead and persistent mousse. The bouquet shows lifted aromas of honeysuckle and citrus fruits from the Chardonnay, with nougat and roasted nuts derived from the tirage age, while the Pinot Noir contributes delicate strawberry. The palate is well balanced with delicate fruit flavours, creaminess and fresh acid, leading to a dry, light finish with lingering flavours of citrus and nougat.
