Parcels of Chardonnay grapes with a slightly larger component of Pinot Noir are hand picked from the most prestigious vineyards within the comprehensive Hardy viticultural portfolio in Tasmania. Following a gentle whole bunch press and fining, individual batches are vinified on light grape solids before the completion of malolactic on primary ferment lees. Once clarified, the base wines are judiciously assembled to style and prepared for secondary fermentation in bottle. Extended maturation on yeast lees builds further complexity and depth of character into the wine. A traditional expedition dosage completes the process, adding the last components of complexity and ensuring precise palate balance. Alcohol 12.4%
Crystal clear with an extremely fine bead and persistent mousse, delicate colour of fresh straw with a bright green/ gold hue. On the nose, the wine has an unmistakably inviting and complex melange of aromas with influences of fresh oyster, sour dough yeast as well as the aromas of exotic spices, vanilla bean and nougat. An elegant, mineral palate structure with flavours evolving in the glass around lychee, truffle, cinnamon and lanolin. Exhibits fantastic persistence of flavour, the natural acidity and subtle quality oak tannins are the backbone of this textural wine. Sealed under the highest quality cork available, sublime upon release, Brut Elite will continue to evolve and develop exceptional complexity.

Arras
Australia's most industry respected sparkling wine specialist lead the Hardy winemaking team in 1988 to embark on a journey to craft an exceptional Australian sparkling wine equal to the world’s best

For more two decades, the House of Arras have been identifying and developing the ideal vineyard sites for world class sparkling wines. This journey has led the House of Arras to call the ancient soils and cold climate of Tasmania home. The cold climate, pristine environment and ancient soils are perfect for crafting world class sparkling wine. Tasmania's climate is significantly cooler than the mainland, with long summer daylight and maritime influences, which are Ideal conditions for long, slow and consistent fruit development. The House of Arras sources fruit from many outstanding vineyards in southern Tasmania and the south east coast.

Arras

The philosophy for Arras is simple, to create world class sparkling wines. Created by Australia’s most awarded sparkling winemaking team, outstanding parcels of fruit are sourced from across Tasmania's premium cold climate regions. The art of blending sparkling wine is one that can only be mastered by perfecting the craft, patience to allow the wine to mature at its own pace and the experience to know when it is at its best. The entire portfolio of Arras sparkling wines are held back between 3-10 yrs to give these wines the distinction, quality and maturity they require to be world class, unique sparkling wines.

Arras wines express the purity, clean air and cold climate of the Tasmanian isle. Ancient soils make the vines work a little bit harder to grow the grapes. What Arras have learned is how to husband to encourage grapes which can express their best. Arras have remained true to this vision and are committed to cementing a reputation as being the best of the best, one of the great sparkling wine houses of the world.

Arras wines express their age, they express their origin. This gives Arras a uniqueness which remains the House style, it’s an essence, it’s a magical part of winemaking to be able to take wines to this age. Each vineyard bestows its own nuances of character on chardonnay and pinot noir fruit.

Arras

The art of blending sparkling wine is one that can only be mastered with years of experience. Many individual parcels are woven together to create the final blend, each bringing its own profound character to the complete wine. The world's leading sparkling wines require time to develop complexity and character. Part of Ed Carr's long term vision for the House of Arras was to release a single vintage wine with a minimum of 8 years tirage age. This vision is now realised as the House of Arras takes the next step in its journey.
