The House of Arras Brut Elite is a unique sparkling wine from Australia’s most awarded sparkling house. Made predominantly from a single vintage, the wine’s exceptional complexity and consistent style is achieved through a portion of multi-vintage blending. The Cuvée Number, displayed on the label, identifies the predominant vintage and batch number.
Cuvée 1701 is made up of Pinot Noir 55.9%, Chardonnay 34.6%, Pinot Meunier 9.5%.
Light to medium straw yellow colour with a fine and persistent bead. Lifted nose, complex and beguiling aromas of gunflint, white stone fruit, lychee, candle wax and oyster shell. Red fruit-driven with generous flavours on the palate, fine minerality and a complex texture. The three varieties combine to offer a seamless palate of sophistication and poise. Secondary flavours of truffle and brioche overlay the lychee-like fruit, further building complexity and persistence. A firm natural acidity provides the backbone for the longevity and vibrancy of this elegant wine.
