About the Wine

Jansz certainly live up to their reputation as a luxury sparkling wine house with this Vintage Cuvee.

They take the best fruit from their vineyard, carefully selected, and after some fermentation, extended ageing and blending we end up with this intense, yet delicate and elegant, sparkling wine.

It's a fantastic bottle to pop open at your next gathering, and pairs excellently with a wide variety of foods.

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

Only the best hand-picked fruit from our vineyard is selected for this definitive Australian sparkling wine. Select barrel fermentation and four years of lees ageing provides this wine with the complexity, creaminess and sophistication that have become the trademark of Jansz Tasmania.

Each block is handpicked and fermented as an individual batch. Gentle handling, partial fermentation in aged oak barrels for six months and complex assemblage blending has resulted in this powerful and elegant wine. Extended ageing on yeast lees for a minimum of four years after secondary fermentation gives wonderful complexity to the final wine.

The Real Review

"Medium to light yellow colour with a vigorous foam of bubbles. The bouquet shows malt, almond meal and nougat, some poached peach, very inviting and more than just simple fruit. The wine is rich and layered and has a goodly dab of sweetness in the middle, the finish full and long and relatively dry. A very tidy wine." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

"Co-fermented chardonnay, pinot noir and meunier in this impressive sparkling, which offers elegance and focus. Savoury aromas, such as grilled bread and almond pastry meld with lemon and spiced pink berry. The palate takes a smoothly refreshing line, from the start to the crisp, dry finish. Drink over the next six years." - JamesSuckling.com

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).
