Jansz "Premium Cuvée" Brut Tasmania

SKU #1061821 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The latest nonvintage from Australia's most famous Tasmanian sparkling producer is a tasty drop at a bargain price. A blend of Champagne's three classic varieties, this bottling combines fruit from the north and south of the island. Eighteen months on lees results in a bubbly that is mostly fruit driven—lemon, apple and pear—with the yeast-derived brioche notes serving as a backdrop. *Editors' Choice* (CP) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

92 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Rich, flavoursome wine with chocolate box, strawberry and citrus flavours plus a savoury brioche/bready influence. Mouth filling wine with character. Good food wine. Inner quote mark (9/2014)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A cool-climate Chardonnay-based fizz that punches above its weight. About 5% of the wine matures in old French oak before the second fermentation, where it spends two years on lees, gaining creamy toasted almond notes to join crisp green apple fruit. A steal when on offer. (TG) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

91 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark A great deal of zip and a good deal of flavour. Complex flavour it is too. Lemon meringue, toast, lees, red apple, pink grapefruit and roasted nut characters all flash through the palate. Some grip to the finish; not a bad thing. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A fresh nose with apples, fresh citrus and preserved lemons. Medium-bodied with some nice green and citrus fruit, steely acidity and a bright finish. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Succulent, with a thread of saline that mingles with plump notes of lemon curd, tangerine and melon, showing some richness. Finishes crisp, with fresh acidity. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

The Jansz "Premium Cuvee" recently took top honors at the Decanter International Wine Awards for Best International Sparkling Wine! From Jansz: "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."
