Fizz - ARRAS, ‘Grand Vintage’. Tasmania, Australia

Sorry This bottle is currently not available.

2008 Now finished: ARRAS, ‘Grand Vintage’. Tasmania, Australia

Bin: 60
Alcohol Percentage: 12.5%
Area: Cool climate Tasmania, off the south coast, is source of Australia's most acidic grapes - perfect for making serious fizz in Champagne style.
Grape Variety: 65% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, aged for 8 years on the lees
Producer: 'The House of Arras' is Australia's top sparkling wine producer. It's actually owned by the giant Hardy BRL, but it has always been run independently, with winemaker Ed Carr allowed to do whatever he pleases to make the best possible wines
Old Bridge Rating: Rich but pretty dry (only 6.5g of residual sugar, about half that of some Champagnes), this is long matured fizz of real complexity and interest
Press Reviews: "Arras is made by a quietly spoken genius, Ed Carr, whose name should be known around the world. He is, by some distance, Australia's greatest sparkling winemaker". James Halliday
'Platinum' rated in Decanter World Wine Awards 2019 - "Fresh and alive! Rich and weighted with ripe pineapple, orange skin, brioche and shortbread characters. Creamy and textured on the palate with brisk acidity and a persistent finish" 97/100 points.
