The philosophy for Arras sparkling wines is simple, to create world class sparkling wines. Created by Australia’s most awarded sparkling winemaker, Ed Carr, outstanding fruit are sourced across Tasmania’s premium cold climate regions. The art of blending sparkling wine is one that can only be mastered by perfecting the craft, patience to allow the wine to mature at its own pace and the experience to know when it is at its best. We have remained true to this vision and are committed to cementing our reputation as being the best of the best and one of the great sparkling wine houses of the world. These wines express their age, they express their origin. This gives Arras a uniqueness which is our style – it’s an essence, it’s a magical part of winemaking to be able to take wines to this age. The entire portfolio of Arras sparkling wines are held back between 3-10 yrs to give these wines the distinction, quality and maturity they require to be world class, unique sparkling wines.
Moderate salmon pink in colour, with a lively and persistent fine bead, the Arras Rosé displays enticing aromas of fresh red berry fruits, married to the complexity of extended tirage maturation; along with brioche like yeast, nougat and exotic spices. The palate is rich, yet structurally elegant with immense complexity and persistence. Savoury characters mingle with nuances of ripe strawberries and cream on the low dosage palate, and are held together by the fine acid backbone. This wine exhibits great persistence with a sublime refreshing finish.
