Arras EJ. Carr Late Disgorged Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir pays tribute to the dedication and inspiration of its maker, EJ. Carr. As the pinnacle of House of Arras, EJ. Carr Late Disgorged is a wine of great intensity and character, with excellent structural elegance and flavour persistence. After 10 years on lees the wine has amazing complexity and yet retains the remarkable freshness of the character typical of a world class prestige cuvée. A true expression of Tasmanian terroir and impeccable winemaking.
Potent and rich, complex and layered. Scents of preserved lemon, ginger, chicken stock, sea spray, sourdough bread, toast and cinnamon. Flavours similar, so intense and yet compact, a distinct elegance and seamless flow, silkiness to texture too, a vinous expression but wildly complex and savoury to boot. The power builds and builds. Bubbles tight, racy, a restraint from saline/minerally acidity and yet the mature wine characters stand up too. So serious, so good, a wildly good sparkling wine.
