12.5% ABV / 750ml
A blend of three classic grape varieties of sparkling wine: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier.
The wine is made from select parcels of premium fruit from vineyards throughout the renowned cold climate sub-regions of the Tasmanian Coast: Pipers River, Derwent Valley and the Tamar Valley.
The vines are trained using vertical shoot positioning and they are exposed to long summer daylight and maritime influences. This ensures the ideal conditions for long, slow and consistent fruit development, resulting in quality sparkling wine grapes that produce wines with the greatest elegance, finesse and complexity.
‘A’ By Arras spent a minimum of three years in bottle on its lees before disgorgement and blending followed by at least six months in bottle before release which gives it a rich but fresh flavour.
