About The Wine

The name Jansz has become synonymous with ultra premium Sparkling from Tassie, and offers extreme value at every price point.

This is one of their rarest premium cuveés - a late-disgorged vintage sparkling that sits at the top of the wine style in Australia. It's a powerful and intense expression of Tasmanian terroir from the Pipers River region.

It's the perfect aperitif, or if you're feeling spicy, the perfect accompaniment for a "Champagne" (well, Tassie Sparkling?) breakfast.

About Jansz

Jansz Tasmania is widely regarded as one of Australia's best luxury sparkling wine houses - which makes a lot of sense when you consider they've been devoted solely to making sparkling wines since 1986.

Climate is integral to winemaking, and Tasmania's climate is very similar to that of northeast France. The Hill-Smith family recognised the potential the area held to make world-class sparkling wine, and purchased the Jansz property in 1998.

They create their wines with the belief in minimal intervention and working alongside nature to create beautiful, elegant wines - and they do it very well, too.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Gentle handling, partial barrel fermentation in French oak for seven months and complex assemblage blending has resulted in this classic wine. Just under eight years of ageing on yeast lees after secondary fermentation gives wonderful yeast complexity to the final wine.

Pale gold in colour with a delicate bead and persistent mousse. Intense, complex aromas of preserved lemon, poached pear and oyster shell with underlying nuances of truffle and roasted hazelnuts. The palate is elegant, layered and complex.

Blend : Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2024
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

The Real Review

"Light yellow colour, youthful for its age. The bouquet shows lemon balm, fresh herbs, almond meal and lightly-buttered toast; straw and hay as well. It shows attractive aged character as well as freshness. Lovely flavour, rich and mellow and complex, yet light on its feet and still frisky. Clean, dry and refreshing at the finish." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

The Wine Front

"On the one hand it feels honeyed, creamy and mellow; on the other its herbal and citrussy and powerful. It finishes dry, almost grippy but there’s much going on here, both flavour- and texture-wise, not to mention aromatically. All over it’s impressive." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
