Jansz ‘Premium Cuvée’ Non-Vintage
Tasmania, Australia $29.95 (566828) 12.5% alcohol
Pale yellow in the glass, the aromas are redolent of lemon grass and citrus. The blend of 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir dances lightly on the palate delivering delicate and well-defined flavours of racy lemon biscuit, toasted nuts and white grapefruit zest carried along on a lovely stream of fine-bead perlage. A perfect aperitif, it also matches up well to lighter-styled appetizers like cold prawns or mussels steamed in white wine. Order for daily home or office delivery by the case of 6 from B & W Wines.

Jansz ‘Premium Rosé’ Non-Vintage
Tasmania, Australia $29.95 (37499) 12.5% alcohol

Pinot Noir predominant and spending 2 years on the lees, this offers up fresh and lively aromas of red berry fruit and floral notes. Red currant and ruby red grapefruit flavours coat the palate with a generous texture. It’s mid weight with good balance and structure sporting a lingering crisp and dry finish adding nuances of freshly sliced strawberry. It pairs perfectly with pan-seared salmon under a drizzle of freshly squeezed lemon and earned its final half star on value. Available for daily home or office delivery by the case of 6 from B & W Wines. (Vic Harradine)
