Jansz Premium Rosé NV
A wine full of “joie de vivre” that transports the delights of summer into a glass. A vibrant yet delicate non vintage Rosé from the very best Tasmanian vineyards – drink for enjoyment and refreshment! Crafted in the Old World style, but with inspiration from today’s innovative techniques and knowledge. The fruit is sourced from selected cool climate vineyards across Tasmania, ranging from the Pipers River and Tamar Valley regions in the north to the Coal River Valley in the south. Specially selected and crafted individual batches form the basis of this Rosé.
Comprises a blend of 77% Pinot Noir and 23% Chardonnay. Hand-picking, gentle whole bunch pressing, cool fermentation, 100% malolactic fermentation, complex assemblage and extended ageing on lees after bottle fermentation, all combine to produce a stylish and complex wine. To maximise blending options and complexity in the final wine, batches are kept separate during winemaking. Released with a minimum three months of bottle ageing.
Pale, pale, pale rose colour. A vibrant sparkling Rosé with delicious and captivating aromas. Strawberries and cream, rose petals, Turkish delight and fresh brioche waft from the glass. Generous red fruit flavours of raspberry, candied red cherry, strawberries, and a pronounced layer of brioche to accompany the fine bubbles. The creamy palate is textured and rich, but also possesses an elegant vibrancy and freshness.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
2015 – GOLD
– 91 POINTS
You have to squint to see it, but there’s just the slightest of pink hues to Jansz’s latest Premium Rosé. The nose leads with a combo of toasty hazelnut, dried fig, lemon verbena, orange zest and dried lavender aromas. The palate, while a little lacking in depth of flavor and length, comes with fresh, vigorous bubbles and a chalky texture. A solid drop from one of Tasmania’s best-known producers.
2014 – SILVER
Pale colour – only just rosé. Serious, chalky nose along with mature, complex savoury tones. Light and delicate in the mouth with a fine intensity of fresh red fruit through to a long finish. Finesse and harmony throughout.
TOM CANNAVAN’S WINE-PAGES.COM – 88 POINTS
Very small red fruit aromas, with a nice creaminess to both texture and fruit, soft and fresh enough, and commercially appealing.
