Jansz Tasmania Late Disgorged Cuvee 2012

Stock ETA – early-mid July.

Pale gold in colour with a delicate bead and
persistent mousse. Intense, complex aromas
of preserved lemon, poached pear and oyster
shell with underlying nuances of truffle and
roasted hazelnuts. The palate is elegant, layered
and complex. Chardonnay drives the palate
structure providing purity and length with
savoury notes of seaspray and candied citrus
zest. The Pinot Noir complements the structure
of the Chardonnay with mouth-filling texture
and opulent flavours of strawberry compote and
rosewater. Nearly eight years ageing on lees has
given this wine further complexity and added
nuances of white nougat, truffle and roasted
hazelnuts to create a rich and luxurious wine.

Jansz Tasmania Late Disgorged Cuvee 2012

Stock ETA – early-mid July.

Established in 1986, Jansz Tasmania specialises in crafting luxury
sparkling wines from Tasmania. Australian owned by the Hill-Smith
family since 1998, the vineyard was named Jansz Tasmania, paying
homage to Abel Janszoon Tasman who first sighted the island in 1642.
Proudly Tasmanian.
In years where wine quality reaches the highest standards, a few select
bottles are held back to age for an extra four years, creating this Late
Disgorged Vintage Cuvée. The extra years of ageing on lees in bottle
give amazing depth and complexity to the final wine.

The growing season began with a mild spring,
enabling even flowering and good fruit set.
Summer temperatures were slightly above
average resulting in an earlier finish to vintage.
The resulting wines show concentrated flavour
and fruit purity with their customary mouthwatering natural acidity.
TERROIR/PROVENANCE/REGION
Long aged and handcrafted from the best block
of Pinot Noir in our estate vineyard at Pipers
River. Deep, free-draining, ferrasol soils and
close proximity to Bass Strait combine to allow
long, cool ripening that produces intensely
flavoured fruit, balanced with lingering
natural acidity.

resulted in this classic wine. Just under eight years of ageing
on yeast lees after secondary fermentation gives wonderful
yeast complexity to the final wine.
