The Details

Tasting Note Very pale gold in colour with an exceptionally fine bead. Aromas of white florals, fresh straw and honeysuckle with notes of toasted brioche. The palate is elegant and poised. Vanilla bean and spiced pear mingle with lemon zest and hints of sea spray. This is a sophisticated, savoury wine with fine, creamy, nougat texture from extended time on tirage and long, chalky, mineral acidity.
Best Enjoyed With Serve with pan-seared chicken breast, shallots and asparagus; snapper fillets with lemon butter and baby potatoes; or vegetable tempura with soy dipping sauce.
Treatment This small parcel is whole bunch pressed with only the finest of the first juice retained. Fermented and aged in mature French oak barriques for eight months to gain further complexity, before selection of the finest barrels for assemblage and tirage. Four and a half years of ageing on lees in the bottle develops richness and finesse.

Accolades

A fantastic food wine for the best fish and chips you can find
A classic Tasmanian Blanc de Blancs style already close to its peak. Pale golden in colour it opens up with fine and detailed aromas showing the purity of high quality Chardonnay – citrus, chalk and florals with attractive developed toasty notes. There is then excellent power to the palate thanks to a firm line of crisp acidity which underlies a bed of citrus and nougat which opens out into a mouth filling finish. A fantastic food wine for the best fish and chips you can find.

Another excellent release and offering sharp value.
Only made in exceptional vintages. Jansz Tasmania (part of the greater Hill Smith Family Vineyards) release this in an important gift box so as to protect the wine bottled in the clear glass. Light lemon gold in hue. Meringue, honeysuckle, white blossoms, vanilla bean, oyster shell, sea spray, almond croissant, smoked chicken and a savoury leesy depth. Powerful and driving palate that builds and builds while retaining class and elegance. Long, textural, chalky savoury tail. Another excellent release and offering sharp value.
