Fresh and alive! Rich and weighted with ripe pineapple, orange skin, slight brioche and shortbread characters. Creamy and textured on the palate with brisk acidity and a persistent finish.
The House of Arras was established by Australia’s most awarded sparkling winemaker, Ed Carr, with the intention to craft world-class sparkling wines. Carr sources fruit from a handful of outstanding vineyards in southern Tasmania and on Tasmania’s south-east coast. Each location bestows its own nuances of character on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit.
Many individual parcels are woven together to create the final blend, each bringing its own profound character to the complete wine. The art of blending sparkling wine is one that can only be mastered after years of experience, garnered by Ed Carr in his years-long winemaking journey.
The signature components of Arras wines are complexity and depth. From the EJ Carr Late Disgorged and Grand Vintage to the Blanc de Blancs and the Brut Elite, The House of Arras range embodies the philosophy of Ed Carr, to craft wines with complexity and character, and that express their age and their origin.
