More information on wine critics and ratings

A true prestige cuvée based on attributes of pristine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the finest Tasmanian vineyards, crystal clear in appearance with an enticing fine and persistent bead.

This wine is medium deep straw in colour with a fresh gold hue. The bouquet displays lifted nuances of brown lime, butter biscuit and oyster whilst the palate reveals a complex flavour profile, exhibiting characters of honey, nougat, sourdough toast and truffle. A richly flavoured and intriguing palate, with a strong natural acid backbone, elegant structure and great persistence.

The wine retains a brilliant freshness and vibrancy - the hallmark of the House of Arras style.

Robert Parker (RP) : 94+ Points (2000)
The 2000 EJ Carr Late Disgorged has an intensely scented, evolving toasty / biscuit nose over notes of honey drizzled peaches, ginger, nuts and baker’s yeast. The palate offers a complex array of fruit and autolytic flavors while maintaining great poise and elegance with a good backbone of crisp acid, small, finely formed bubbles and a long finish. While it’s not cheap, this is superb effort from winemaker Ed Carr offers a glimpse of Tasmania’s potential for producing some of the world’s highest quality sparkling wines. Drink this one now through 2018+.

Characteristics of strawberry, raspberry and rhubarb dominate the nose while the palate shows a robust concentration of red fruits as well, all of which complemented by a well balanced acidity. Pairs well with chocolate or chocolate mousse and red fruit based desserts or simply strawberries and cream!
