Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
The 07 Jansz has a mid-golden colour that suggests it s enriching with a little time under the belt. Fine mousse and persistent bead as it sits in the glass. The nose has quite a strong savoury thread, with toasty autolysis characters on offer and some lovely, fresh, pithy lemon rind and chalky chardonnay notes _ a really complex and engaging wine. The palate is fresh and lively, with crisp and dry lemon pithy flavours, a little stone fruit, some nutty acidity too. Really neat balance and shape here, and a lemon sherbet finish. All about the chardonnay.

Whole bunch-pressed, bottle-fermented chardonnay and pinot noir taken through 100% mlf, then kept on yeast lees for 48 months prior to being disgorged. The wine combines complexity and full flavour with delicacy, the dosage precisely calibrated. Lovely now or later.

Too many Australian sparklings are released too early. Not this one. The balance of zesty lemon, grapefruit and mineral freshness with the complexity of roast nuts, dried fruits and honey is spot on.

With a super-fine bead, this is another impressive release for Jansz. This chardonnay/pinot noir blend has an air of complexity that raises it above the pack, showing poached apple, quince and pear fruits, with plenty of fine, yeasty complexity, and hints of nougat and citrus. The palate has terrific layering of flavour and texture, nougat, zesty lemon citrus and crisp apple flavours; it runs fine, long and true through the finish. Impressive complexity with focus and balance.

Bright straw-green; this is a traditional method blend of chardonnay and pinot noir that spent 48 months on yeast lees in this bottle, resulting in a wine with abundant personality and character, its mix of brioche, citrus and stone fruit framed by acidity only partially tamed by malolactic fermentation - which is as it should be with Tasmanian sparkling wine.

A bold style, chardonnay-dominant fruit flavours supported by the yeast ageing. Aged for four years before release, can be cellared for the short term after release.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Bottle-fermented, the base wine is a single site 51%/49% Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend. It spent 5 years on yeast lees before being disgorged, and combines elegance and complexity. The brioche/cracked yeast/cashew flavours have a creamy texture on entering the mouth before the fused assemblage of apple, stone fruit and strawberries (the last courtesy of pinot noir) drives through to the lingering finish.

Very stylish sparkling that makes a striking, complex and composed impression and, once again, we're dealing with champagne-like class! There's dried lemon peel and toasted nuts here, some gentle white florals and the full array of nougat ingredients, with minerally, yeasty notes at the edges. The palate has terrific drive and concentration, all arranged in a neat line that builds weight and complexity through the finish, with toasted hazelnuts to close. Hard to beat this.

Fragrant, citrussy aromas; bright and fresh; very good length and, in particular, balance; still very youthful.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Strong yellow-green; stone fruit and citrus; good depth, balance and mouthfeel; fresh yet complex.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; a fragrant array of bready/creamy/citrussy aromas introduce a lively, fresh, super-elegant lemony/citrussy palate with a fine lingering finish.
