Jansz Premium Rose
A well frothed mousse subsides to reveal a pale salmon pink coloured base that’s delicately threaded by a fine, persistent bead. Attractive strawberry and raspberry scents emanate from the glass with some musk, subtle yeast lees and chalk notes also evident. Savoury raspberry, strawberry and yeast lees flavours flow across the palate with some peach, light toast and chalky mineral elements lying underneath. Finishes dry with vivid acidity and a nimble aftertaste.
A blend of 77/23% pinot noir/chardonnay from vineyards in the Pipers River and Tamar Valley regions. Pale salmon in the glass with an energetic bead and mousse, aromas of redcurrants, strawberry and raspberry with hints of berry cream, brioche, rose petals, white flowers and stone. There is a creamy flow on the palate, gentle, pure red fruits and some light autolysis notes as the wine slowly fades away showing a slight tweak of texture and a fine, racy line.
