Arras Vintage Rose 2005
The House of Arras is a true expression of its origin and maker – a marriage of exceptional cold climate Tasmanian vineyards and uncompromising sparkling winemaking techniques mastered over decades. The Arras Grand Vintage is the fulfilment of a vision to craft world class sparkling wine. Enriched by the complexity of character that follows six years tirage, yet retains all the brilliant freshness and longevity that will continue to improve with age.
A blend of pinot noir (dominant) and chardonnay sourced from the Lower and Upper Derwent and Huon Valley districts. Here the wine spends at least seven years on lees. Pale salmon-pink; some spicy forest fruit aromas; the complex palate picks up all of the red fruit characters. A delicious wine, ready now. Price:$79.99; Rating: 96 Points; James Halliday
Salmon pink, this pinot noir and chardonnay blend is made using the traditional method, and spends at least six years on tirage. Forest strawberries, nectarine and brioche aromas are swathed in finely balanced Tasmanian acidity on the palate, helping to provide a deliciously spicy aftertaste. 12.5% alc; cork 96 points; drink to 2020; $80; Halliday in The Weekend Australian
