Jansz LD Late Disgorged CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pipers Brook Tasmania
Jansz was Tasmania's first wine to be made according to traditional Methode champenoise, the only specialist on the apple isle, solely devoted to the art of sparkling. Late Disgorge is the extravagant technique of bottle ageing on sediments for an extended period. An exemplary vigilance in the vineyard realizes meagre yields of the most extraordinary quality fruit, to be exactingly crafted into a pinnacle of the wine makers art.

Jansz Vineyard lies in the Tamar Valley at the heart of the Pipers River region in northeastern Tasmania. With a mantle of red basalt soils and cool climate moderated by the proximity of Bass Strait, the vines are ideal for allowing grapes to ripen slowly and develop the lingering acidity essential to produce world class sparkling. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are hand harvested, separately treated to barrel ferments, lees stirring and malolactic, achieving distinctive creaminess and successive layers of fruit on the palate. Vintage wines of exceptional quality are chosen to be held for at least seven years on yeast lees to develop into the richest, deeply layered, complex sparkling wines.
Vibrant, deep straw, with very fine bead. Intensely complex sparkling nose, lanolin and brioche dominate along with notes of white peach and ripe lemons, coupled with truffles and honey. The palate is layered and rich, even lush, a fine line of acidity gives the wine wonderful structure and length. Palate shows flavours of poached fruits, spice and zesty, citrus pith. Decrying its age, showing immeasurable length and an exceptional, everlasting finish.
