Crafted from fruit sourced from south east Tasmania, this multiple vintage style sparkling wine has remarkable brightness, character and a creamy youthful structure. Medium straw colour with a fresh golden hue, the House of Arras Brut Elite 801 retains a brilliant clarity and an ultra-fine and persistent bead. Exotic characters are drawn together in this captivating wine including white peach, lychee, spice and fresh oyster. The palate is rich and generous with opulent flavours of lychee, glace cherry and truffle oil. A perfectly poised balance of dosage, acidity and structural tannins this wine exhibits a remarkable presence and persistence.
Blended from the classic sparkling grape varieties, impeccably grown in the premium viticultural regions of Tasmania, it was the select parcels of premium Tasmanian fruit that were handpicked and whole bunch pressed to ensure the remarkable brightness of character and structural elegance in this wine. After fining, these individual batches were fermented on light grape solids and underwent 100% malolactic fermentation on primary ferment lees. Once clarified, these individual base wines were judiciously blended to style and prepared for secondary fermentation in bottle. Extended maturation on yeast less further built complexity and depth of character into the wine. The expedition dosage completes this traditional method wine, adding the last components of complexity and ensuring precise palate balance.
Born of a long-held desire to craft world class sparkling wines, the House of Arras is a true expression of its origin and maker – a marriage of exceptional cold climate Tasmanian vineyards and uncompromising sparkling winemaking techniques mastered over decades. The House of Arras truly represents the pinnacle of Australian sparkling wine.
