Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance

Moderate salmon pink in colour, with a lively and persistent fine bead.

Aroma

The 2004 Arras Rosé displays enticing aromas of fresh red berry fruits, married to the complexity of extended

tirage maturation; along with brioche like yeast, nougat and exotic spices.

Palate

The palate is rich, yet structurally elegant with immense complexity and persistence. Savoury characters mingle with nuances of ripe strawberries and cream on the low dosage palate, and are held together by the fine acid backbone. This wine exhibits great persistence with a sublime refreshing finish.

7 years.

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.
