Jansz "Premium Cuvée" Brut Sparkling Wine Tasmania

SKU #1061821 92 points Bob Campbell

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

91 points James Halliday

 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.  (8/2018)

90 points Decanter

 An appealing firm mousse leads to shows bright green apple on the nose and palate, enlivened by zippy citrus acidity. One of Australia's most reliable sparkling wines, from grapes sourced from several cool-climate sites in Tasmania. About 5% of the blend is matured in old barriques before the second ferm and it matures on its lees for two years before release, lending complexity and interest. (TG)  (5/2018)

90 points James Suckling

 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.  (8/2018)

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."

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.
