Jansz "Premium" Brut Rosé Tasmania

SKU #1053019 92 points Bob Campbell

 Pale, copper coloured sparkling wine that has spent seven months in oak and at least 18 months in bottle before being disgorged. It’s a blend of 68% Pinot Noir 26% Chardonnay 6% Pinot Meunier. The oak appears to have added extra texture and weight to the wine. It’s a bone-dry wine, despite having a residual sugar of 9 g/l. Austere and moderately complex sparkler with an appealing toasty influence.  (9/2014)

92 points Decanter

 With 68% Pinot Noir and 6% Pinot Meunier in the blend, this pale salmon traditional method rosé has lingering, creamy strawberry and shortcake nuances to the palate; 26% Chardonnay gives line and length. Supremely drinkable. (SA)  (10/2017)

91 points James Halliday

 Under Diam for the first time ever (hoorah!), Jansz Rosé retains its gorgeously subtle pale salmon hue. More toasty and biscuity and less perfumed than usual, there are notes of wild strawberries, watermelon and hints of tomato, concluding with cool Tasmanian acidity and gentle phenolic grip.  (8/2017)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 There aren't many better values in rosé sparklers than this. Hints of toast and citrus add nuance to strawberry scents on the nose, while brioche notes add depth to the palate. It's a bit creamy in texture, yet remains dry and refreshing on the finish. *Editor's Choice* (JC)  (2/2017)

90 points James Suckling

 A fresh rosé sparkler with some cranberry essence and white roses. Light to medium body, some pretty acidity and a fruity finish. Drink now.  (8/2018)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 A savory sparkler, this wine’s tart strawberry flavors and bitter apple-skin notes set an austere style, while the fine bubbles make it friendly. Clean and firm, this will needle an appetite for raw oysters.  (2/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

 A very pale rosé, with just a hint of berry poking through the smoky, toasty aromatics. Deft and elegant in texture. Drink now. 250 cases imported. (HS)  (12/2013)

K&L Notes

Méthode Tasmanoise! Here's how the winery explains it: "Jansz Tasmania vineyard lies in the Tamar Valley in the heart of the Pipers River region in north eastern Tasmania. With a mantle of red basalt soils and a cool climate moderated by the proximity of Bass Strait, the Jansz Tasmania vineyards are ideal for allowing grapes to ripen slowly and develop the lingering acidity essential to produce a premium sparkling wine. Jansz was Tasmania's first sparkling wine to be made according to the traditional méthod champenoise and, as the only Tasmanian specialist solely devoted to the art of sparkling winemaking, Jansz Tasmania has since come to describe the technique used in creating each of their definitive wines as Méthode Tasmanoise."

Strawberrys and a light brioche finish, the Jansz Rose is a total delight. It still amazes me that this actually comes from Down Under, as it could easily pass as a cremant. Red fruit characters are very present in this Pinot-dominant blend, and honestly worth a whirl for any sparkling wine lover.

If you're looking for an unexpected sparkler (or just a great value for bubbly) then look no further than this cutie from Tasmania. There are notes of strawberries and citrus, and these elements are balanced by a soft creaminess and gentle brioche breadiness. It's a crisp, clean, and fun beverage that's great for any occasion.

The Tasmanian climate lends itself perfectly to sparkling wines, yet it's surprising how few people know about the phenomenal bubbles they produce. Jansz has always been one of my favorites because of this rosé. This wine is dry and crisp, but the high percentage of Pinot Noir gives great berry flavors and richness, and the barrel aging rounds out the sharp edges and gives a creamy texture and briochy taste. My colleague told me they tasted this wine as part of his WSET training and everyone thought it was Champagne. The cold, windy climate of Tasmania helps keep these wines super fresh and delicate. It really encompasses all those qualities we look for in a fantastic sparkling wine and they even use the traditional méthod champenoise to ensure the highest quality. This is a fantastic Champagne alternative at an easy everyday price.
Top Value!

Personally I cannot wait to show up to my next party with friends and bring a bottle Tasmanian Sparkling Rose; conversation starter in a bottle (and only $20!) Champagne is grown at the far northern reaches of where grapes can ripen due to cold temperatures and a short growing window. The same is true at the far southern reaches of our planet where Tasmania takes wine growing to the extreme producing a strikingly similar tart, small berried production of extraordinary grape juice. Jansz’s Brut Rose is a soft pale pink (not over extracted) and greets you in the glass with the chalky, bready nose you hoped for with raspberries and rosewater adding to the bouquet. As you sip the wine you find tight bubbles and the fruit broadens to introduce white satellite peach to the persistent red berries. Cheers Mate!

Country:

Australia

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great wine regions are in the southeastern area of the continent, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia; Yarra Yarra Valley and Pyrenees in Victoria; and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from the land Down Under, where Riesling also enjoys international acclaim. While many equate Aussie wines with “value,” there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
