A by Arras Premium Cuvée Tasmanian Sparkling Wine NV
A by Arras Premium Cuvée is the newest addition to House of Arras family. Made using the same grapes and method employed in Champagne, this non-vintage Tasmanian sparkling wine was matured on the lees for three years. This is the same duration legally required for Vintage Champagne, making A by Arras astounding value for money. Displaying complex notes of nougat, peach yoghurt, lychee, sea spray, beach pebbles, pine forests, merino wool jumpers and something umami like mushrooms fried in butter, this is a sparkling wine worth celebrating, because at this price there doesn’t need to be a celebration.
Having amassed hundreds of trophies and gold medals over the last quarter of a century, House of Arras is Australia’s most awarded sparkling wine producer and rivals Les Grandes Marques of Champagne. James Halliday, Australia’s most famous wine critic, rates it as a five-star winery and notes: “While there have been distinguished sparkling wines made in Tasmania for many years, none has so consistently scaled the heights of Arras. The complexity, texture and structure of the wines are akin to that of Bollinger RD and Krug.”
Born in England, Ed Carr moved ‘Down Under’ at the age of eight. Racking up 34 years of experience in the industry, 27 of which have been focussed primarily on sparkling wine, this “quietly spoken genius” has, in the words of James Halliday, become “by some considerably distance Australia’s greatest sparkling winemaker.” Sourcing outstanding fruit from Tasmania’s finest cool-climate regions, employing the same method used in Champagne and maturing their bottles for an inordinately long time, House of Arras creates wines that are renowned for their complexity and depth.
