The first of its kind, a salient example demonstrating the values of meticulous winemaking and a commitment to extended tirage maturation. Crafted in what was to eventually become the established Arras housestyle, employing the best vinification and viticultural methods to achieve wine of the highest quality. Following ten years tirage, EJ Carr Late Disgorged presents the original 1998 Arras in a new guise, a cuvee filled with layers of complexity and intensity. EJ Carr displays all the elegance, power and vibrancy of world class sparkling wine.
Arras was founded on the vision and spirit of the highly dedicated Hardy winemaking and viticultural team, who believe Tasmania to be the preeminent sparkling wine region of Australia. To this end, Arras seek to identify and capture each individual personality of every varietal grape and every corner of the vineyard, to craft wines which are unique, alluring and distinctively Tasmanian. Cuvee EJ Carr is a noble cepage, predominantly Chardonnay with a third Pinot Noir. After ten years resting on lees, it is the patience to allow the wine to mature at its own pace and the experience to know when it is at its best which has allowed EJ Carr to achieve new heights in richness, complexity and intensity. Approx 12.5%
TASTING NOTES
Crystal clear with a fine and persistent bead, deep straw in colour with a bright yellow gold hue. The nose shows intense mushroom/ butter/ toast characters with lanolin and oyster nuances. On the palate, the wine is rich and flavoursome, whilst very complex and intense. Multi layered flavours of truffle, toast and sea brine combine with a great length of flavour and brightness. A dry style with a refreshing, natural acid finish.
