Should you require any further encouragement, here is what a some of our favourite reviewers had to say about these wines:

Henskens Rankin 2011 Vintage Brut:

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

This outstanding sparkling wine is pale, pure and pristine: two-thirds chardonnay, one-third pinot noir, lemony, bright, chalky and long. Delicious. Max Allen The Australian Financial Review

Striking pale colour; notably elegant and fresh. Excellent conception and execution. 94 points James Halliday Halliday Wine Companion.

Henskens Rankin 2012 Vintage Brut:

Medium to full yellow colour, with an aged bouquet of nougat, malt and smoked-smallgoods characters, a touch of vanilla and pronounced nuttiness. A glimpse of oak. The wine is full and rich, dry and savoury in the mouth, the texture fluffy and creamy. A generous wine with substantial aged character and charm.  96 points Huon Hooke

The 2012 is so pretty and delicate on the nose with fresh lemon, raw pastry dough, green apple and white peach blossom all tumbling around. The delicacy continues with minuscule bubbles dancing on the tongue and those springy/autumnal morning notes are joined by ground almonds, a clean salinity and a hint of caramelised pecans, vanilla, peaches, lemon posset and mouthwatering acidity....This is as fine as a dewy, gossamer web on a hedge twinkling away as the sun rises and the new day brings its potential. This can age for years if you want to see those nutty flavours work their way to the fore but if you like things fresh, light, delicate and precise,  95 points Curly Haslam-Coates The Wine Front

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.
