Wine tasting notes

Jansz Tasmania Premium NV Rosé is a vibrant pink, reminiscent of rosewater and salmon. It has a lifted nose showing delicate rose petal and Turkish delight from the Pinot fruit, and fresh cream and nougat from the malolactic fermentation and extended aging on lees. The wine has a well balanced palate, with layers of strawberry fruit and creamy fine mousse. It finishes crisp and dry with zingy acid matched by lingering flavours of nougat, rose petal and citrus.

Winery Information

Jansz

Jansz Tasmania vineyard lies in the Tamar Valley in the heart of the Pipers River region in north eastern Tasmania. With a mantle of red basalt soils and a cool climate moderated by the proximity of Bass Strait, the Jansz Tasmania vineyards are ideal for allowing grapes to ripen slowly and develop the lingering acidity essential to produce a premium sparkling wine. Jansz was Tasmania?s first sparkling wine to be made according to the traditional m?thod champenoise and, as the only Tasmanian.. read more

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (NV)89 pts

eRobertParker.com #195 Jun 2011 - Reviewer Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Blended of 68% Pinot Noir, 26% Chardonnay and 6% Pinot Meunier, the NV Jansz Non Vintage Rose, has a very pale salmon-pink color and expressive notes of fresh strawberries, peach blossoms, golden delicious apple and a whiff of crushed biscuits. The bubbles are fine and long-lasting while the palate offers good balance with high acidity off-set by judicious dosage (10.1 grams per liter of residual sugar) equating to a brut style with a long peaches and cream laced finish. Drink it now.

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (NV)89 pts

Jul 2010 - Bright salmon skin color with tiny bubbles. A shy, slow-to-unfold bouquet displays scents of blood orange, pear and musky herbs. Juicy red berry and citrus flavors pick up notes of orchard fruits and spices with air and put on weight as well. Round and supple on the finish, with a late note of white pepper adding cut. I like this wine's blend of tangy and deep. -- Josh Raynolds

Tasted Feb 2013 - Pinot Noir, Chardonnay. Very pale salmon. Actually I find the nose of this a bit more interesting than that of the Jansz 2006 Chardonnay. Very pretty, maybe not bone dry but delicate and nuanced. Some definite Pinot character. GV? (JR)

Wine Spectator (NV)90 pts

Web Only 2013 - A very pale rosé, with just a hint of berry poking through the smoky, toasty aromatics. Deft and elegant in texture. Drink now. –HS

Wine Enthusiast (NV)90 pts

This pale salmon rosé is a reliable sparkling wine at a very good price. The latest NV release is toasty on the nose, then offers just faint hints of peach or berry flavors. It's lithe yet creamy on the palate, with a long finish. J.C. (2/1/2012)

James Halliday (NV)94 pts

Jansz Rose declares its greatness in its delicate restraint, and the latest release is as pale and elegant as ever. The faintest salmon blush tint subtly coaxes out dainty red berry and red cherry fruits, but the theme here is more about mouth filling lees-derived texture and cool, energetic Tasmanian acidity than it is about overt flavour. For pure, breathtaking restraint, Jansz remains the queen of Australian rose.

Tyson Stelzer (NV)93 pts

Tyson Stelzer 93pts (NV) - "Gorgeous and sophisticated, the allure of this wine is as much what it is not as what it is. A sparkling rosé of such restraint is rare at this price. Subtle strawberry hull and lemon blossom flavours glide into a long finish, accented by fine minerality."

Nick Stock (NV)91 pts

Nick Stock, Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2011, 91pts(NV) - ""Plenty of ripe, red, pinot noir fruit aromas here. This has an alluringly sweet red perfume and gently savoury complexity working away below. The palate delivers crunchy red cherry pinot noir flavours and builds nice, fleshy, creamy weight towards the finish, and savoury notes to close."

Vinification Notes

Tasmania is renowned as Australia’s home of great quality sparkling wine. The Jansz Tasmania Non Vintage Premium Cuvée is made from grapes grown on multiple sites in Tasmania, all producing excellent sparkling wine fruit. All batches are kept separate during winemaking to maximise blending options and the complexity of the final wines. The wines go through secondary fermentation in bottles and are aged on yeast lees for as long as possible – the average tirage of the final blend is two years.
