Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier Victoria
The noble cépage of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, finished with the inclusion of parcels from Tasmania's prestigious Clover Hill vineyard, a vintage sparkling of amazing textures and immeasurable palate length. Since inaugural release in 1978, each bottle of Taltarni Brut has been fermented and matured on yeast lees according to Methode traditionelle. Elegant and refined, articulating the sophistication and affable charm which have come to be recognized as the endearing and enduring sparkling Taltarni style.
Taltarni were one of the founding wineries in the new age of the Pyrenees. The original sixty acres of vines were planted by David Hohnen, who later went on to found Cape Mentelle. John Goelet selected Taltarni Vineyards after a worldwide search of the finest winegrowing regions. The chosen site, with its red clay, quartz and sandy loam soils and cool continental climate is idyllic for the production of premium quality sparkling wines. The aim within the vineyard is to increase fruit concentration and flavour intensity whilst retaining superb length and balance of natural acidity. Taltarni is fermented in its own bottle and matured on yeast lees, achieving a final complex and sophisticated sparkling wine style.
Pale straw hues, fine mousse and persistent bead. A creamy, delicate and refreshing sparkling wine with a lifted bouquet of lemon, honeydew and nougat. The time on yeast lees has achieved a lovely, textured mid palate and a smooth lingering finish, the ideal aperitif, refreshing and clean. A joy with hors d'oeuvres and smart canapes.
