DESCRIPTION
  • The name Jansz pays homage to Tasmania’s namesake, the Dutch explorer Abel Janszoon Tasman who first sighted the island in 1642. In fact, when it was established in 1975, the Jansz vineyard was originally named after Tasman’s ship, the Heemskerk.
    In 1986, esteemed Champagne house, Louis Roederer, partnered with the owners of Heemskerk Wines to produce Tasmania’s first premium vintage sparkling wine. They saw the similarities between the climate here and the famous wine region of their homeland.
    In 1997, the Hill-Smith family purchased the vineyard and began the journey that has seen Jansz Tasmania become the most highly regarded sparkling wine house in Australia.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Good winter rains filled the soil profile. The 2010 harvest started early and fruit quality was exceptional. Gentle handling, partial barrel fermentation and careful assemblage to create the base wine, then seven and a half years ageing on lees, has given the final wine refined yeast complexity. The extra years of maturation in the bottle have created a depth and complexity to rival the world’s greatest sparkling wines.

    TASTING NOTES

    Pale gold in colour with a fine, persistent bead. Intense aromas of preserved lemon, seaspray and oyster shell with underlying hints of toasted brioche, strawberry compote and freshly shaved truffles adding complex allure. Layered and complex flavours of crystallised grapefruit zest, roasted hazelnuts, honeycomb and truffles create a luxurious and amazingly youthful wine that belies its age.

  • REVIEWS

    'Medium to light brassy yellow hue. The bouquet is complex, nougat, oatmeal and some low-level sulfides adding to the complexity. Nice creamy texture and fluffy mouth-feel. A full-flavoured, creamy style of wine, with lovely fluffy texture and richness, the gentle acidity seamless and contributing to its great drinkability.'
