Tasmania is renowned as Australia’s home of great quality sparkling wine. This Cuvée is made from wines grown on multiple sites in Tasmania, all producing excellent sparkling wine fruit.
All batches are kept separate during winemaking to maximise blending options and the complexity of the final wines. The wines go through secondary fermentation in bottles and are aged on yeast lees for as long as possible; the average tirage of the final blend is 2 years. This blend is made with 52% Chardonnay and 48% Pinot Noir.

"Pale straw-green; a multi-vintage blend, the varieties not specified, but presumably chardonnay and pinot noir; is crisp and vibrant, with a long, lingering dry finish." 91 points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013, 17 July 2012
"Another tidy Jansz NV with plenty of vibrant, fresh melon and citrus fruit aromas and a little peach here too; quite youthful and fresh. The palate delves more into red fruit territory with a fine, smooth texture, pear and melon through the middle palate, and some pithy peach skin grip through the finish. Nice balance here." 91 points -

Winery Tasting Notes
The Jansz Tasmania Non Vintage Premium Cuvée is pale gold in colour, with persistent fine mousse.
A lifted nose displaying honeysuckle and citrus notes from Tasmanian Chardonnay. The tirage age contributes aromas of nougat and roasted nuts, whilst Pinot Noir fruit shows delicate strawberry.
The palate is well balanced with delicate fruit flavours, creaminess from the fine bead mousse and fresh acid. The wine finishes dry and light with lingering flavours of citrus and nougat.
