House Of Arras EJ Carr Late Disgorged 2003 - August 2019 Decanter review
As the pinnacle of House of Arras, EJ. Carr Late Disgorged is a wine of great intensity and character, with excellent structural elegance and flavour persistence. After 10 years on lees the wine has amazing complexity and yet retains the remarkable freshness of the character typical of a world class prestige cuvée. A true expression of Tasmanian terroir and impeccable winemaking - the 2003 vintage is only the sixth release of this wine.
Crafted with all the best winemaking and viticultural methods, including whole bunch pressing, primary fermentation on light grape solids, 100% malolactic fermentation of base wines to add sophistication and structure, and the inclusion of a small percent fermented in new French oak. Meticulous blending of only the best parcels of Tasmanian fruit and 10 years on lees has ensured this wine shows amazing complexity and yet continues to retain the remarkable freshness expected of a typical world-class prestige cuvée.

House Of Arras EJ Carr Late Disgorged 2003 - fiche technique
A true prestige cuvée based on attributes of pristine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the finest Tasmanian vineyards, crystal clear in appearance with an enticing fine and persistent bead. This wine is medium deep straw in colour with a fresh gold hue. The bouquet displays lifted nuances of brown lime, butter biscuit and oyster whilst the palate reveals a complex flavour profile, exhibiting characters of honey, nougat, sourdough toast and truffle. A richly flavoured and intriguing palate, with a strong natural acid backbone, elegant structure and great persistence.
