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.
Made by the traditional method, it spent 8 years on lees before disgorgement in Apr '18. Always a favourite. There's a special mix of intensity, finesse and length, purity another word that comes to mind. The flavours are of grapefruit, white peach on the one hand, cashew and cake on the other.
