In years where wine quality reaches the highest standards, a few select bottles are held back to age for an extra four years, creating this Late Disgorged Vintage Cuvée. The extra years of ageing on lees in bottle give amazing depth and complexity to the final wine.

The Wine

Pale gold with a delicate bead and fine mousse. The aroma is intense and complex showing the beautiful synergy between Tasmanian Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The initial aromas of lemon curd, white flowers and nougat are still evident, having evolved to include preserved lemon and honeysuckle. The additional time on yeast lees offers toasty notes of baked brioche and hazelnuts. The palate is layered and complex. The Chardonnay provides purity, power and palate length with notes of creme brulee, citrus zest and sea spray. The Pinot Noir compliments the structured elegance of the Chardonnay with mouth filling texture and flavours of rose water and strawberries. Up to 7 years ageing on yeast lees in bottle has given the wine further complexity and richness. Finishing with a mouthwatering natural acidity the 2013 Jansz Vintage Cuvee - Late Disgorged is a sparkling wine with finesse, power and elegance.
