Pale golden with tiny bubbles, the nose is bright and complex with crisp apples, lemon juice, honey, almonds, brioche and vanilla.
The creamy vanilla notes continue on to the palate combining with oyster shell, sea spray, green apples, almond meal, pastry dough, lemon juice, honeysuckle blossom, white peach and freshly cut button mushrooms.
Elegant, well structured and incredibly complex, this wine is only showing the merest hints of maturity. 96 points Curly Haslam-Coates The Wine Front
Notably elegant and fresh. Excellent conception and execution. 94 points James Halliday

The interest in making wine started early. When Frieda was eight years-old, on a dairy farm in New Zealand, she decided to tread grapes from the garden in her mother’s bread-pan. She poured the juice directly into bottles, so when fermentation started the fizzy mess spilled all over the floor. You could say fizz has always been her thing.
David started making wine at eleven, in a leafy Melbourne suburb, and never stopped. We still have that first bottle of plum wine around somewhere.
We’ve always loved sparkling wine so the decision to specialise in making it came naturally. In 2010 we started Henskens Rankin of Tasmania with just two tonne of fruit in tiny parcels and a vision of creating distinctively Tasmanian styles of sparkling.
To realise that vision we deliberately choose small-scale, artisanal approaches in our winemaking, always seeking to maximise quality. Doing crazy things carefully (wonderful advice from Eric Rodez).
Unashamedly luxurious and informed by our professional backgrounds in sustainable agriculture and natural resource management, Henskens Rankin of Tasmania is founded on the principle that luxury is ethical. It guides our winemaking and how we choose our partners. It extends to every aspect of the business, particularly our supply chain: wherever possible our packaging is ethically-sourced, re-useable, compostable and/or recyclable. From 2020 all our wines are vegan friendly.
It’s a journey in progress.
