Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2012 Vintage) says
The Champenois say the most distinguishing feature of champagne is its ability to retain finesse with age. Achieving this in Australia is perhaps the holy grail of sparkling winemaking, and Jansz has nailed it here. At almost a decade of age, its Late Disgorged has spent eight years on lees (double that of the regular release), building layers of butter and roast almonds, retaining its youthful fig, mirabelle plum and grapefruit vitality. It’s beautifully textured and wonderfully honed, with a silky and chalky mineral structure, intricately interwoven acidity and impeccable integration of low dosage.

Light straw-bronze; strong brioche from the long time on yeast lees; has multiple layers of fruit, and very good length. Gold medal Tas Wine Show '11.

This has built attractive, toasty character with gently sweet lemon biscuit aromas, a little flint here too; the chardonnay component is leading the charge in attractive style. The palate is smooth and finely beaded with lovely ripeness and freshness, settled into flavours of lemon curd and lemon butter. Lovely aged flavours with balanced, fresh textural appeal.

Exceedingly youthful at eight years of age, primary mineral, citrus zest, apple and pear fruits are only beginning to develop the maturity of nutmeg, honey and roast nuts. It finishes crisp, fresh, mineral.

Mid-gold; toast, straw and lemon curd are all evident on the bouquet; the palate is lively and fresh, belying the vintage; almost rugged in its exuberance, creamy in texture, long, fresh and chalky to conclude.

You have to admire the fact that this has had seven years on lees in bottle. The bounty of that time is complexity and tight integration. The colour’s built some depth; it smells of a hole spectrum of chardonnay characters, from floral through citrus, melon and stone fruits. The palate has some roundness and weight, thanks to the vintage and the time in bottle. Very fine acid tingles away below ripe nectarine and peach flavour; hints of fresh cashew to close."

Fantastic complexity with nougat/brioche-like derived yeast-aged flavours that linger enticingly. Great value.

An outstanding late disgorged style, showcasing the lemon zest finesse of chilly Tassie fruit. Seven years on lees has developed rich brioche and marzipan aromas as well as nutmeg notes that linger on the finish. Fine, lingering minerality leaves it finishing structured and fresh.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Very stylish and elegant, this full-bodied, maturing sparkling wine has an alluringly complex bouquet whose nutty, citrusy aromas reveal smoky, toasty nougat and biscuit-like complexity, plus a suggestion of cinnamon. Round and chewy, with a deep, lingering core of citrus, melon and berry fruit backed by meaty, wheatmeal-like nuances, it’s long and refreshing, finishing with a lingering note of mineral.

Jeremy Oliver (2001 Vintage) says
A stellar, rather wild, assertive and unusually funky release for this label whose deep, rich core of fruit and bright, citrusy acidity neatly tie together all its various nuances of texture and complexity. Its meaty, lightly smoky bouquet of marzipan, lanolin, melon and grapefruit precede a long, even palate underpinned by nuances of smoked meats, finishing sweetly fruited but long and savoury, with wonderful focus.

Freshly toasted brioche on the bouquet, displaying an attractive level of development; creamy and fine on the palate, with a dry, linear and chalky finish; complex and satisfying.

Balance, elegance and acidity are the priorities here. Achieved through very carefully timied picking windows. The result is both delightfully complex and refreshingly tight and poised, with candied lemon rind developing into baked apple and clove flavours.

A bigger brother of the Vintage Cuvee, with some spice and caramel characters together with brioche; a big, mouthfilling food style.

If you like the richness and savoury appeal of bottle-developed characters, then this is the wine for you. Complex aromas are present, it shows the whole array of nougat aromas, nutty but still fresh. The palate follows in the same rich vein of nougat and green almonds; those lees have been working away for seven years, adding a rich toasty twist to the finish, grilled hazelnut flavours. A terrific food wine.

Light green-gold; intense and complex, yet still very fresh; citrus, stone fruit and just a touch of toast.

James Halliday (1995 Vintage) says
A blend of chardonnay and pinot noir, aged in magnums and then disgorged into 750 m1 bottles. Brilliant green-yellow; tight, bright aromas of citrus, pear, apple and spice lead into an exceptionally fine and focused palate, citrus-dominated but not at all green. Great value.
