Jansz Premium Vintage Cuvée

Jansz Premium Vintage Cuvée

Jansz Premium Vintage Cuvée from Tasmania.

The Conditions • Warm spring conditions and a dry summer saw a return to reasonable yields • Harvest started early and fruit quality was exceptional in the Jansz vineyard

The Viticulture & Winemaking • Every block from the Jansz vineyard was hand-harvested, produced separately, and kept this way until blending late in the year • Gentle handling, partial barrel fermentation and complex assemblage blending has resulted in this classic 2011 Jansz Tasmania Vintage Cuvée • Four and a half years ageing on yeast lees after the secondary fermentation gives wonderful yeast complexity to the final wine

The Wine • Very pale gold with a delicate bead • Aromas of lemon curd and white flowers with underlying hints of freshly baked brioche and clotted cream • Elegant, layered and powerful with creme brûlée notes and candied citrus peel 

Jansz Premium Vintage Cuvée is made by Methode Tasmanoise which delivers a superb sparkling adventure.

Jansz

“Just three words describe the thinking behind Jansz Tasmania. Time. Patience. Discipline.
The wine embraces all three in equal measure. Time, patience and discipline spent nurturing the vines and their precious fruit. Time, patience and discipline awaiting the perfect moment for picking. Time, patience and discipline in the winery as years are devoted to making the wine with painstaking care and attention.
The vineyards lie in the Tamar Valley along the Northern Tasmanian route at the heart of Tasmania’s Pipers River region, an area known worldwide as “”Sparkling Tasmania””. With a mantle of red basalt soils and a cool climate moderated by its close proximity to the ocean, it is ideal for the slow ripening of fruit and lingering acidity so essential to the production of premium sparkling wine. In fact, the area’s climate so resembled Champagne and Burgundy that several leading French Champagne houses considered basing new operations there.”
