2709 days maturation before release. A blend of Chardonnay (49%) and Pinot Noir (51%). Partial barrel fermentation in aged French oak for seven months for the base wine. Jennifer Doyle (long time Jansz vine whisperer) finishing this off after previous custodianship of Nat Fryar and Teresa Heuzenroeder,
Jansz Tasmania, Late Disgorged, Vintage Cuvée, Pipers River, 2014
Youthful pale gold colour and near green highlight. Exquisite beading. Incredible perfume with layered flaky pastry, nougat, preserved lemon to lemon curd, briny sea spray freshness, just ripe strawberry, hazelnut spread and a touch of fresh truffle. Hyper fine and focused palate slicing through an expansive mousse. Latent power holds the intensity long on the palate. The long aging on lees provides savoury depth. Incredible pricing.
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
