Drank this last Sunday for Mother’s Day. Arras is probably Australia’s best Sparkling producer. Of recent years certainly the most awarded. A few years ago this 2007 won Best Sparkling at the Royal Queensland Wine Show and then the Trophy for Champion Wine of the Show! The wine itself is mid Lemon in colour - low on fizz - we drank this from Burgundy glasses. Bakery aromas with Lemon Curd. 78% Chardonnay, 22% Pinot Noir. The lemon/citrus flavours derived from the Chardonnay. The following day Sherbet, Honeycomb and Quince. 7 years on Lees giving a wonderful complexity and ridiculous value at only $60. I don’t know how Ed Carr can do it.

17.5/20 (93/100) Аромат лимона, сливочной карамели, мёда и сдобы. Высокая кислотность. Весьма неплохо.

Amazingly delicate and elegant following the Heidsieck and the fact that it spent 7 years in Tirage. This wine was not only the Champion Sparkling of the Brisbane Wine Show but the overall Champion Wine of the Show. Bravo Ed Carr.
