$199.99 case of
1998 was the first vintage of the E.J. Carr Late Disgorged and this 2007 release celebrates the 10th consecutive release. Meticulously crafted from a tapestry of cold climate vineyards in pristine Tasmania. A rare level of sophistication that redefines the tirage. This wine spent 14 years on tirage.
This beautifully gift boxed wine is deep straw in colour with a bright green gold hue and a superfine and persistent bead of mousse. Intriguing and complex aromas reminiscent of apple pie, honey, roast almond, black truffle and sea spray. An inviting palate with a rich melange of flavours including nougat, desiccated lemon, honeycomb, alluring spices and sauteed field mushroom. An exquisite structure built around a low dosage that allows the complex characters to be revealed, exposed and enjoyed. The rich palate is beautifully balanced with the structural elegance and natural acid line. Perfect with poultry and game meats.

98 POINTS - Andrew Calliard 2022 "Pale medium colour. Magnificent complex wine with developed marzipan, honey, tobacco leaf aromas, underlying nectarine notes and plentiful toasty, flinty notes. Richly flavoured palate with generous marzipan, hazelnut, honey tobacco, stone fruit flavours, fine lacy chalky textures, some tonic water notes, attractive mid-palate viscosity and fresh persistent bubbles. Finishes crisp with hints of dried apricots and grilled nuts. Drinking brilliantly now. Best to drink soon to take advantage of the complexity and freshness. On yeast lees (tirage) for 14 years! Disgorged February 2022. Drink now – soon. 12.5% alc"
