Expert Reviews

Rating 96 - Mike Bennie, Wine Front SEP 2018

“Was one of the bigger cropping years, which suits this sparkling style, I think, less tannin and colour”, explains Ed Carr, “it’s just grown very well on lees”. It spends thirteen years on lees. Thirteen. “We’re working on ten years or more”, says Carr, “but they seem to get better and better, so we keep extending the time”. About 65% chardonnay, ‘a more traditional blend’, qualifies Carr.

Savoury bouquet, ginger biscuits, hay, butter toast, dried fruits, nuts, some underlying fresh citrus and ripe apple characters. Cavalcade of things going on. Savoury and very rich to taste, generous in the palate, soft but the bubbles are incredibly energetic and saline acidity is very zingy. Palate staining flavours, freshness, density, complexity, deliciousness. Has it all. Incredible wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

The bouquet displays lifted nuances of brown lime, butter biscuit and oyster whilst the palate reveals a complex flavour profile, exhibiting characters of honey, nougat, sourdough toast and truffle.

A richly flavoured and intriguing palate, with a strong natural acid backbone, elegant structure and great persistence.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For more than a decade, the House of Arras team has been identifying and developing the ideal vineyard sites for world class sparkling wine. This journey has led the House of Arras to call the ancient soils and cold climate of Tasmania home. Its climate is significantly cooler than the mainland, with long summer daylight and maritime influences, which are Ideal conditions for long, slow and consistent fruit development. The House of Arras sources fruit from many outstanding vineyards in southern Tasmania and the south east coast. Each location bestows its own nuances of character on chardonnay and pinot noir fruit.

Winemaker Ed Carr

Ed Carr, House of Arras master winemaker, is Australia’s most awarded sparkling winemaker. He has long held the belief that Tasmania can, and should, produce exceptional sparkling wines equal to the world's best. Over the past 20 years Ed Carr has amassed more than 100 trophies in Australian wine shows including 21 consecutive "Best Sparkling White Wine of Show" trophies at capital city wine shows. However, a world class sparkling wine can only be crafted with the finest fruit and the House of Arras viticultural team carefully nurtures the House of Arras vineyards through the vagaries of each and every growing season. Only the very best parcels of Tasmanian chardonnay and pinot noir are selected for House of Arras, carefully handled in separate batches and made into wine each vintage before being blended and left to mature and develop their own special nuances over many years.

Art of Blending

The art of blending sparkling wine is one that can only be mastered with years of experience. Many individual parcels are woven together to create the final blend, each bringing its own profound character to the complete wine. The world's leading sparkling wines require time to develop complexity and character. Part of Ed Carr's long term vision for the House of Arras was to release a single vintage wine with a minimum of 8 years tirage age. This vision is now realised as the House of Arras takes the next step in its journey.
