Jansz Premium Cuveé NV

I've always found this Tasmanian sparkler pretty reliable. A blend of 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier, it has pleasant flavours of apple and cinnamon.

Interesting production method as well (taken from Oddbins website) - a long, cool fermentation followed by a year of ageing on its lees in a tank to add complexity. It's not clear to me where the secondary fermentation takes place, but I can only assume it's in the tank and not the bottle, which would be the Charmat process.

Good stuff, and great value.
