Arras Methode Traditional Grand Vintage 2008


  • Product details
    Fruit for this wine was hand-picked from cold climate Tasmanian vineyards prior to gentle whole bunch pressing, from which only free-run juice was collected. Primary fermentation was undertaken on light lees, followed by 100% malolactic fermentation. Once clarified, the wines were judiciously blended to style, bottled as tirage and matured in cool, dark storage for a minimum of seven years before disgorgement.
  • Tasting notes
    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.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday,

Vintage 2008 - Bright straw-green; this is as energetic and fresh as a 3yo vintage sparkling, showing no signs of age. Granny Smith apple, lemon zest and unsweetened lemon juice flavours cloak the deliberate tannins in the wine, are all there as part of the structure and texture that make this wine so exceptional.
