Jansz Tasmania Late Disgorged Vintage Cuvée 2004
In 2004, conditions were less than ideal. The long, cool vintage provided a challenge with constant rainfall throughout the ripening period. However, remarkable vigilance in the vineyard rewarded us with batches of very high quality wine. In exceptional vintages, a few dozen are selected to age for an extra four years in the bottle, creating a wine called the Late Disgorged Cuvée. 2004 was such a wine with the extra years ageing on lees giving this superb wine great depth and complexity. Look out for whiffs of lemon and white nectarines. A fruity, intense palate displays ripe lemon curd, poached pears, truffled honey, toasted almonds and spices.
