Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines. Limited yields of immaculate fruit, artisanal winemaking by leading vignerons of the apple isle, a no expense spared approach in the elevage and quality of oak, the wines of Clarence House are a treat for enthusiasts on a quest to procure the elusive vintages of an original Van Diemen's Chateau...

The Heemskerk Vineyard was established in 1975 at the very heart of Pipers Brook, the finest sparkling wine terroir in Australia and the birthplace of Jansz. In 1986, Heemskerk was joined by the esteemed Louis Roederer of Champagne in their pursuit of the definitive Australian sparkling wine. The pick of Heemskerk parcels, are individually crafted and assembled into the nation's finest effervescent Chardonnay. Bunches are individually hand sorted and destemmed, treated to the full compliment of Champenoise Methode Traditionelle, vinified on gross sediments and sent to the Jansz cellars for an extended term of maturation in own bottle on yeast lees before the ultimate disgorgement, doseage and reseal.
Pale golden hues, a fine bead and persistent mousse. Intense and intriguing aromas of oyster shell, preserved lemon and truffle, notes of toasted brioche. The palate unravels layers of citrus stonefruits, crystallised lemon and lemon curd overlaid with roast almond nougat, an exquisite balance between the fine creamy textures and long drive of chalky, mineral acidity. A wine of luxury and sophistication.
