Australian sparkling rivals French champagne

Australia finally has a sparkling wine to rival France’s best champagne.

Last year Tasmania’s House of Arras won the ‘Best Sparkling’ trophy at every capital city wine show in the country.

It has been a 30-year labour of love for creator Ed Carr who originally set out to craft an Australian sparkling wine to rival the world’s best.
