Here's what the wine critics had to say about them:

2013 Brut Rose

"Pale salmon-pink; the white peach of the chardonnay and wild strawberry of the pinot are joined in vinous holy matrimony.  Such dosage as there was is hidden in the satin of the fruit. Lovely wine."   96 points, James Halliday 2021 Wine Companion 

"This wonderful sparkling rosé...it’s pure and precise, but it also has subtle creamy texture and a lovely rose-hip tang thanks to the wild primary fermentation in older barrels." Max Allen, Australian Financial Review

2011 Vintage Brut                   

"Pale golden with tiny and fast-moving bubbles,...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. This will age for many years to come," 96 points, The Wine Front

"Grapes were harvested in the cool, damp 2011 vintage with particularly fresh acidity, so, even after six years on yeast lees and two years on cork, this outstanding sparkling wine is pale, pure and pristine: two-thirds chardonnay, one-third pinot noir, lemony, bright, chalky and long. Delicious."- Max Allen, Australian Financial Review

Each pack contains a bottle of 2013 Brut Rose and 2011 Vintage Brut, presented in a complimentary Australian-made, flame branded wooden gift box valued at $30.  Padded with locally sourced, heat treated wood wool, box and wood wool are suitable for posting overseas. An elegant, thoughtful gift for any discerning lover of fine sparkling wine (yourself included).


Our 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.
