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 2012 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.

The climatic conditions of the Jansz vineyard rival the famed French wine region of Champagne. In fact, it was originally with French contribution that Jansz became Tasmania’s first sparkling made using the traditional Méthode.
Today we call it, Méthode Tasmanoise. It’s the essence of a partnership between the environment and our winemaker. Just as the cool Tasmanian climate creates spectacular beauty in nature, it is also instrumental in the creation of art in bottles.

It could be argued we’re completely mad growing grapes in the wild and unforgivingly cold Tasmanian environment. But there’s méthode to our madness.

The Jansz Tasmania vineyard sits to the northeast of the island state within the Pipers River region of the Tamar Valley. This cool little corner is colloquially known as ‘Sparkling Tasmania’.
Temperatures here are moderated by close proximity to Bass Strait. The ocean breezes keep the temperature up during winter – minimising risk of frost, and down in summer – allowing our grapes to ripen slowly and develop intense, delicate and refined flavours.
Resting on a bed of pure, red, free-draining basalt soils, the Jansz vineyard truly is the perfect site to grow grapes for world-class sparkling wines.

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.”
