The Arras Grand Vintage is a wine of outstanding quality, enriched by the great complexity of character that follows eight years in tirage. This traditional blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir retains all the brilliant freshness and longevity that will continue to allow the wine to improve with age. This is a benchmark Australian sparkling wine which exhibits all the hallmarks of a world class sparkling wine.

The appearance is crystal clear with an ultrafine and persistent bead, medium straw with a bright yellow gold lustre. The bouquet expresses an enticing aroma of grapefruit, jasmine flowers, sea brine and lychee. The palate has great elegance and poise with complex nuances of exotic spice, truffle, meringue and natural yoghurt. This is a dry style of sparkling wine which exhibits intense flavour persistence and vibrancy across the seamless structure. Chardonnay 78%, Pinot Noir 23%

“An outstanding wine, complex and multi-layered with smoky, strawberry and freshly-baked bread aromas, the palate elegant and refined but also generous in flavour, with soft texture and superb balance. Trophy, best sparkling, 2016 Sydney Royal Wine Show.” – 97 Points Huon Hooke

“Grand Vintage remains the core of Arras’ portfolio of now seven cuvées. Led confidently by more than three-quarters chardonnay, this vintage upholds a refreshingly pale straw hue and exciting fruit energy of lemons, apples and white stone fruits. The engagingly reductive tendency of chardonnay has been captured to masterful effect in grilled toast and gunpowder nuances. A low dosage of just 6g/L is all it needs. Wonderfully fine, lees-derived mouth feel and outstanding persistence confirm a true Grand Vintage” – 95 Points Tyson Stelzer

 

“Arras style at its towering best, with layer-upon-layer of complexity ex brioche, toast, flint, white peach and apple. 100% Tasmanian, 77% chardonnay, 23% pinot noir, gleaming straw-green hue, and very, very complex. Although it spent more than eight years on tirage, the mouthfeel suggests this exceptional wine has time to go.” – 97 Points & Top 100 Wines of 2016 James Halliday
