Medium straw in colour with a bright gold hue, the A by Arras Premium Cuvee NV has a crystal clear appearance with a fine and persistent bead. A complex and inviting aroma with nuances of forest floor, nougat, exotic spice and lanolin. The palate has opulent flavours reminiscent of lychee, butter sautéed mushroom, natural yoghurt and fresh oyster.
A blend of three classic grape varieties of sparkling wine, select parcels of premium Tasmanian fruit from vineyards throughout the renowned cold climate sub regions of Tasmania. Fastidious viticulture and winemaking including extended lees aging is the essence of this alluring wine of complexity and vibrancy. The wine spends a minimum of 3 years on lees before it’s released and at least 6 months on cork, which gives it a rich but fresh flavour.
This elegantly structured wine has great persistence of flavour and exquisite balance of dosage, tannin and acidity. An excellent example of a non-vintage style, exhibiting beautiful poise and a refreshing, natural acidity on the finish.
