Henskens Rankin 2012 Vintage Brut

The Fizz

From the makers who epitomise Tasmanian sparkling wine. 

A traditional method blend of 70% chardonnay and 30% pinot noir sourced from mature, hand-tended vines established in 1980’s - 1990s from the Coal River Valley, Derwent Valley, Tasman Peninsula, and North-west Tasmania.

All fruit is carefully handpicked before being pressed and part-fermented in seasoned French oak up to 18 months with medium bâttonage to impart greater richness and texture into the wine. 

The final product sees a total of seven years lees, showing incredible complexity on the nose, with brioche, lemon zest, and tarte tatin. This follows with a rich mouthfeel yet lipsmacking acidity, accompanied by notes of peach, lemon and nuttiness owing to its cork age following disgorgement. Best enjoyed in the luxurious setting it was designed for - caviar, roasted lobster or wagyu M9+ steak.

Uniquely Tasmanian, look no further for your vintage champagne challenger. A real stand-out wine with only 1400 bottles produced.
