Jansz Premium NV Cuvée

Jansz Premium NV Cuvée

Tasmania is renowned as Australia’s home of great sparkling wines. The fruit used in this Jansz Premium NV Cuvée is grown on selected, cool climate vineyards across Tasmania.
To maximize blending options and complexity in the final wine, batches are kept separate during winemaking. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle and is aged on yeast lees for as long as possible. The perfect balance for our Premium Cuvée is reached at just over two years.
Honeysuckle and citrus scents are immediately apparent with slight aromas of nougat, roasted nuts and a hint of strawberry from the Pinot Noir. A well-balanced palate of delicate fruits and creaminess fills the mouth with a lingering finish of citrus and nougat.

The Jansz Premium NV Cuvée is based upon Jansz wines of several vintages with specially selected and crafted individual batches from the cooler locations in South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria, with the largest regional parcels being Tasmanian. The matching of the crisp and fine flavours has resulted in a structured wine of medium body with zesty fruit characters.

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.”
