Jansz Premium Cuvée NV

Tasmania, South Australia, AustraliaThis label is highly reliable because the fruit is sourced from selected cool-climate vineyards across Tasmania. The individual batches are all kept separate until the blend, roughly a 75/25 chardonnay/ pinot noir mix. The nose is a taut affair of red apples, lemon zest, and honeysuckle, with streaks of wild strawberries and bright acidity adding the tension. The palate is rich in lemon curd and creamy lees with final notes of grapefruit and licorice. It gets 18 months of lees contact, which explains the complex nutty notes. It is a delicious sparkler at a fair price.Tasted: 13 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
