More information on wine critics and ratings

Vineyards: For more than a decade, the House of Arras team has been identifying and developing the ideal vineyard sites for world class sparkling wine, which led them 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.

Vinification: Fruit for this wine was hand picked from cold climate Tasmanian vineyards prior to gentle whole-bunch pressing, from which only free-run juice was collected. Primary fermentation was undertaken on light lees, followed by 100% malolactic fermentation. Once clarified, the wines were judiciously blended to style, bottled as tirage and matured in cool, dark storage for a minimum of seven years before disgorgement.

Decanter (DCT) : 95 Points (2007)
Several years on lees produce a startlingly fresh, profound traditional method cuvee with a creamy mousse. Comprising 78% Chardonnay and 22% Pinot Noir, it features tangy lemon posset, spiced apples and shortbread. Weighty yet precise.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92+ Points (2004)
The 2004 Arras Grand Vintage offers lemon / lime aromas with hints of white blossoms, orange peel, coriander seed, baking bread and a touch of chalkiness. Crisp, elegant and refreshing in the tightly-knit mouth, it gives a very satisfying toasty / creaminess in the long finish. Drinking well now, it should improve with another year or two in bottle and drink to 2018+.

The “Vigna Rionda” vineyard is in one of the best positions in Serralunga: when Giovanni and Renato Massolino decided to buy it, they exchanged it for a larger vineyard. It produces a powerful, concentrated wine, suitable for long ageing.
