Jansz Tasmania Premium Rosé NV: A Sparkling Jewel on a Small Island

Hello Friends,

Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to taste wines from all over the world, from well-known and highly regarded regions to unexpected areas that are producing quality wines that are just waiting for your discovery. Nevertheless, there are some wine regions I hear more about than I savor. Australia’s southernmost state, the island of Tasmania, is one of them. The region enjoys cool-climate maritime influences and is recognized for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as well as the production of Méthode Tasmanoise (traditional method) sparkling wines. While Tasmania represents a tiny percentage of Australia's total wine production—and the region’s wines may be hard to find—just about everything I’ve tasted from the island has been delicious. In fact, I’m looking for more of this sparkler as I type. It is well deserving of both your attention and your table. For further information and where you can find this wine, please see my tasting notes below.

Jansz Sparkling Rosé: A delicious sparkling wine from Tasmania—an island state off Australia's south coast. 

Jansz Tasmania Premium Rosé NV (SRP $30): Jansz Tasmania is one of the pioneering producers of Tasmanian sparkling wine, originating in 1986 as a French-Australian partnership with famed Champagne house Louis Roederer. Today, the estate is 100% Australian-and family-owned. Composed of 78% Pinot Noir and 22% Chardonnay, this sparkling rosé is filled with an enjoyable marriage of red summer berries, dried rose petals, and citrus blossom, along with touches of almond and brioche. It is fresh and vibrant, with an underlying creaminess, and it remains lively and refreshing on the palate. This sparkler offers great bang (and bubbles) for the buck, and would be an excellent partner for breakfast or brunch fare. Region: Tasmania, Australia. Other info: ABV 12%, second bottle fermentation, cork enclosure. Click here to find this wine.
