As a pioneer of premium Australian sparkling wine, Jansz Tasmania is renowned for its unique style, known simply as méthode Tasmanoise
The name Jansz pays homage to Tasmania’s namesake, the Dutch explorer Abel Jansz Tasman, who was the first European to sight the island in 1642. In 1982 the region’s likeness to Champagne and Burgundy captured the attention of Heemskerk Wines and the Champagne house Louis Roederer. Together they embarked on the production of a premium vintage Australian sparkling wine.
A blend of 68% Pinot Noir, 26% Chardonnay, 6% Pinot Meunier based upon Jansz wines from several vintages. The batches are kept separate during winemaking to maximize blending options and final wine complexity. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle and is aged on yeast lees for as long as possible. Average age of the final blend is around eighteen months.
