Honeysuckle and citrus scents are immediately apparent. Slight aromas of nougat, roasted nuts and a hint of strawberry from the Pinot Noir. Delicate fruits and creaminess fills the mouth with a lingering finish of citrus and nougat
94 Point Rated - Decanter London
"Complex aromas of croissant, salted butter, hints of caramel and cashew nuts, wind candied Amalfi lemon peel nuances. It delivers power and elegance in equal measures. Delicious from start to finish. Nominated by Justin Knock MW. Drinking Window 2021 - 2040"

"This smells of abundant, forest pippy, black and red fruit. (I thought it a rose in a blind tasting). So a big black grape - pinot noir - influence. Hot cross buns and things. Soft and easy on the tongue with patined, aged on lees softness, but finishing with plenty of fresh fruit."
91 Point Rated - Tyson Stelzer
"Chardonnay dominance explains lemon zest and fresh lemon juice notes; honey and roast nuts from extended ageing on yeast lees; minerality counters sweetness on the finish."

"I opened this alongside the 2004 Jansz ($39.95) and for what it is, preferred drinking the lower priced NV. I’d also add that I did not think the standard Domaine Chandon NV was much chop (coarse but ok) and the 2005 Wolf Blass Gold Label Pinot Chardonnay ($25.95) looked harsh and edgy. Bleh. So this was the pick of the bunch.Pretty, tasty and fun but not without grace and refinement. It offers light lemon and strawberry flavours with a touch of earthiness and has balanced sweetness and good length of flavour. At the price point it’s just the ticket."
90 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Light yellow hue, aromas of nougat, subtle toast and freshly-shelled cashew nuts. The palate is fresh and bright, youthful and dry, delicate, dry and crisp with low sweetness and high acidity. Good intensity of flavour, focus and harmony."
90 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"Medium straw hue. An inviting harmony between the crunch of citrus zest, the succulence of stone fruits and the gentle complexity of toasty, nutty maturity makes for a finely crafted NV blend ready for immediate celebration. Well-defined acid line and a touch of phenolic grip provide definition to the finish."
The name Jansz pays homage to Tasmania’s namesake, the Dutch explorer Abel Janszoon Tasman who first sighted the island in 1642. In fact, when it was established in 1975, the Jansz vineyard was originally named after Tasman’s ship, the Heemskerk. In 1986, esteemed Champagne house - Louis Roederer partnered with the owners of Heemskerk Wines to produce Tasmania’s first premium vintage sparkling wine. They saw the similarities between the climate here and the famous wine region of their homeland. In 1997, the Hill-Smith family purchased the vineyard and began the journey that has seen Jansz Tasmania become the most highly regarded sparkling wine house in Australia.
Fruit grown on selected, cool climate vineyards across Tasmania. To maximize blending options and complexity in the final wine, batches are kept separate during winemaking. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle and is aged on yeast lees for as long as possible. The average age of the final blend is around two years. 53% Chardonnay, 44% Pinot Noir, 3% Pinot Meunier
