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 Brut Elite is the fulfilment of a vision to craft world class sparkling wine. A wine with remarkable brightness of character and structural elegance, the Brut Elite has developed outstanding complexity from extended ageing.
The Brut Elite Rosé Cuvée 1801 is a multi-vintage based Rosé style of great sophistication and interest and is the first release of this label. The precise combination of the three classic varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier creates a complete and seamless wine. The extended tirage age builds beautiful complexity and structural elegance.
Trophy for Best Sparkling Rose - 2023 Australian Sparkling Wine Show.
The inaugural release of this wine for House of Arras. A blend of 64/27.4/8.6% pinot noir/chardonnay/pinot meunier; 4 years on tirage, dosage 2.5 g/L. Pale rose gold in the glass with a fine bead and energetic mousse. Aromas of red cherry, red apple and grapefruit are joined by hints of soft spice, freshly baked brioche, grilled nuts, mushroom broth, proving yeast and white and purple flowers. Super focused and complex with an array of gentle spice and pastry notes coming into play, slowly fading on a long, savoury finish. Excellent poise and tension throughout with minerally drive galore and a captivating 'sucking on a river stone' sapidity and textural ache on the exit. A great first-up release. Drink to: 2035; Price: $61.00; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
