Arras Methode Traditional Grand Vintage 2008
This outstanding Tasmanian Sparkling is enriched by the great complexity of character that follows seven years of tirage. Arras Grand Vintage retains brilliant freshness and longevity that has exceptional balance and a rich, full-bodied taste.
Featuring an ultrafine and persistent bead, the wine reveals mature and complex aromas of toast, honeycomb, sourdough and nougat. The palate reveals an intriguing blend of flavours, including lemon curd, natural yogurt, brine and a hint of forest floor. It is at once elegant and poised with a finely balanced dosage or sugar, acidity and tannic structure.

Vintage 2008 - Bright straw-green; this is as energetic and fresh as a 3yo vintage sparkling, showing no signs of age. Granny Smith apple, lemon zest and unsweetened lemon juice flavours cloak the deliberate tannins in the wine, are all there as part of the structure and texture that make this wine so exceptional.
