The name Jansz pays homage to Tasmania’s namesake, the Dutch explorer Abel Jansz Tasman, who was the first European to sight the island in 1642.

In 1982 the region’s likeness to Champagne and Burgundy captured the attention of Heemskerk Wines and the Champagne house Louis Roederer. Together they embarked on the production of a premium vintage Australian sparkling wine.

The Jansz Tasmania vineyard, which is now owned by the Hill-Smith family, sits to the north-east of the island state within the Pipers River region of the Tamar Valley.

This cool little corner is colloquially known as ‘Sparkling Tasmania’. Temperatures here are moderated by its close proximity to Bass Strait.

The ocean breezes keep the temperature up during Winter – minimising risk of frost – and down in Summer, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and develop intense, delicate and refined flavours. Resting on a bed of pure, red, free-draining basalt soil, the Jansz vineyard is truly the perfect site to grow grapes for world-class sparkling wines.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 93 Points (NV)
The latest nonvintage from Australia's most famous Tasmanian sparkling producer is a tasty drop at a bargain price. A blend of Champagne's three classic varieties, this bottling combines fruit from the north and south of the island. Eighteen months on lees results in a bubbly that is mostly fruit driven—lemon, apple and pear—with the yeast-derived brioche notes serving as a backdrop. *Editors' Choice* (CP) (7/2020)

Decanter (DCT) : 92 Points (NV)
A cool-climate Chardonnay-based fizz that punches above its weight. About 5% of the wine matures in old French oak before the second fermentation, where it spends two years on lees, gaining creamy toasted almond notes to join crisp green apple fruit. A steal when on offer. (TG) (5/2019)

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 92 Points (NV)
Rich, flavoursome wine with chocolate box, strawberry and citrus flavours plus a savoury brioche/bready influence. Mouth filling wine with character. Good food wine. (9/2014)

James Halliday (JH) : 91 Points (NV)
A great deal of zip and a good deal of flavour. Complex flavour it is too. Lemon meringue, toast, lees, red apple, pink grapefruit and roasted nut characters all flash through the palate. Some grip to the finish; not a bad thing. (8/2018)

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (NV)
Succulent, with a thread of saline that mingles with plump notes of lemon curd, tangerine and melon, showing some richness. Finishes crisp, with fresh acidity. (6/2020)

James Suckling (JS) : 90 Points (NV)
A fresh nose with apples, fresh citrus and preserved lemons. Medium-bodied with some nice green and citrus fruit, steely acidity and a bright finish. (8/2018)
