Jansz Tasmania vineyard lies in the Tamar Valley in the heart of the Pipers River region in north eastern Tasmania. With a mantle of red basalt soils and a cool climate moderated by the proximity of Bass Strait, the Jansz Tasmania vineyards are ideal for allowing grapes to ripen slowly and develop the lingering acidity essential to produce a premium sparkling wine. Jansz was Tasmania’s first sparkling wine to be made according to the traditional méthod champenoise and, as the only Tasmanian specialist solely devoted to the art of sparkling winemaking, Jansz Tasmania has since come to describe the technique used in creating each of their definitive wines as Méthode Tasmanoise.
Late Disgorged Cuvée
Individual blocks of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were selected, hand harvested and fermented separately. Select batches then underwent barrel fermentation and lees stirring, which coupled with malolactic fermentation for all wines, gives distinctive creaminess and layers to the palate. Vintage wines of exceptional quality are chosen to be held for at least seven years on yeast lees to develop into rich, layered, complex sparkling wines.

The Jansz Tasmania Premium NV Cuvée comprises 58% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and the remaining 2% Pinot Meunier. Combined they produce a wine with citrusy primary length and balanced acidity.
Jansz Premium NV Rosé is vibrant delicate pink in colour with a fine persistent bead. The fruit flavours give length to the wine and fresh natural acid provides balance and a refreshing finish.
Premium Vintage Rosé
Three tiny blocks of Pinot Noir, J26, J27 and J28, were hand-tended and kept separate through the year, the whole bunch being fermented in old French oak developing complexity and sophistication, then tiraged as one small batch. After more than three years ageing on tirage the wine was disgorged and liquored, again using 100% Tasmanian Pinot Noir.
