Jansz Premium Cuvée Non Vintage Sparkling, Tasmania, Australia
A Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blend with two years cellaring and as much time as possible on its lees before hand creates a wine with structure.
Honeysuckle and citrus scents are immediately apparent with slight aromas of nougat, roasted nuts and a sniff of strawberry from the Pinot Noir. Delicate fruits and creaminess wash through the mouth leaving a lingering finish of citrus and nougat.
"One of the most reliable names in the world of sparkling wine, Jansz continues to impress fizz enthusiasts with its lush, layered, complex creations. With the sort of palate weight that you might expect from a vintage cuvée, just enough acidity to impress purists and also enough fruit to hypnotise newcomers this is a mightily clever wine. We all know that NV cuvées are more difficult to assemble than vintage cuvées and this shows off Natalie Fryar's innate understanding of her craft to a tee. It's stunning value, too!"
