Arras EJ. Carr Late Disgorged Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir pays tribute to the dedication and inspiration of its maker, EJ. Carr. As the pinnacle of the House of Arras, the EJ. Carr Late Disgorged is a wine of great intensity and character, with excellent structural elegance and flavour persistence. After at least 10 years on lees the wine has amazing complexity and yet retains the remarkable freshness of the character typical of a world class prestige cuvée.
A true prestige cuvée based on attributes of pristine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the finest Tasmanian vineyards. Medium straw in colour with a bright, yellow/gold lustre, with an ultrafine and persistent bead. Aromas of sea spray, exotic spice, shiitake mushroom and brioche meld together in this remarkably complex and yet bright wine. A wine of great sophistication, it exhibits nuances of honey, nougat and field mushroom. The palate has an exquisite structural elegance and great tension within the balance of dosage, acidity and fine tannin. The flavours have beautiful persistence and the wine finishes with the vibrancy of lingering natural acidity - the hallmark of the House of Arras style.
