The House of Arras Blanc de Blancs 2004 was made with Ed’s signature attention to detail. Made in the time honoured traditional method the Chardonnay grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed with only the heart run juice selected. The base wines undergo malolactic fermentation and the cuvee is bottle fermented with 8 years lees maturation. Chardonnay is considered to be the pinnacle of the classic sparkling wine varieties and this House of Arras Blanc de Blancs 2004 is a true expression of both Ed’s skill and the longevity, elegance, poise and vibrancy of this sparkling style.

“The wines from this vintage show strong natural acidity and elegance of character that reflect the cool conditions. The House of Arras Blanc de Blancs 2004 is a benchmark wine that truly expresses the great longevity and complexity of this classic style,” said Ed.

Expert Reviews

The grapes come from the Pipers River and Upper Derwent districts, and the wine is not released until it has spent a minimum of eight years on lees. Pale quartz-green; white flower and brioche aromas; very intense and very long; lovely citrus/white peach fruit; dazzling purity. Rating 97 - Drink by 2017 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (APR/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes


Crystal clear with a fine and persistent bead, this wine is medium straw in colour with a bright yellow gold hue.


Dry, crisp and with a seemless palate, the House of Arras Blanc de Blanc 2004 has lifted aromas of orange blossom, nougat and seaspray. The fine palate offers complex flavours of sourdough, truffle and marzipan with great length and flavour persistence - all underpinned by a firm natural acid backbone.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For more than a decade, the House of Arras team has been identifying and developing the ideal vineyard sites for world class sparkling wine. This journey has led the House of Arras to call the ancient soils and cold climate of Tasmania home. Its climate is significantly cooler than the mainland, with long summer daylight and maritime influences, which are Ideal conditions for long, slow and consistent fruit development. The House of Arras sources fruit from many outstanding vineyards in southern Tasmania and the south east coast. Each location bestows its own nuances of character on chardonnay and pinot noir fruit.

Winemaker Ed Carr

Ed Carr, House of Arras master winemaker, is Australia’s most awarded sparkling winemaker. He has long held the belief that Tasmania can, and should, produce exceptional sparkling wines equal to the world's best. Over the past 20 years Ed Carr has amassed more than 100 trophies in Australian wine shows including 21 consecutive "Best Sparkling White Wine of Show" trophies at capital city wine shows. However, a world class sparkling wine can only be crafted with the finest fruit and the House of Arras viticultural team carefully nurtures the House of Arras vineyards through the vagaries of each and every growing season. Only the very best parcels of Tasmanian chardonnay and pinot noir are selected for House of Arras, carefully handled in separate batches and made into wine each vintage before being blended and left to mature and develop their own special nuances over many years.

Art of Blending

The art of blending sparkling wine is one that can only be mastered with years of experience. Many individual parcels are woven together to create the final blend, each bringing its own profound character to the complete wine. The world's leading sparkling wines require time to develop complexity and character. Part of Ed Carr's long term vision for the House of Arras was to release a single vintage wine with a minimum of 8 years tirage age. This vision is now realised as the House of Arras takes the next step in its journey.
