Founded in 1975 in the rough and wild terrain of Northeast Tasmania, these 25,000 acres are unreal to behold, just check out their video. In the mid 80’s people from Roederer discovered the winery, found their micro climate to be so similar to theirs in Champagne that they decided to lend a hand by introducing their method (Méthode Champenoise). Jansz was reborn and have been following that method (though they tongue-in-cheekly call it Méthod Tasmanoise) since. Currently led by a female winemaker, Jansz uses all 3 Champagne grapes (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier) to make their stunner of a rosé.
I first tasted it at Momofuko Saam Bar and it was love at first sip. Pale and pretty, with light bubbles, delicate and elegant. A real treat at an affordable price!
