Winery Tasting Notes
The 2010 Fumé Blanc is a pale straw with fresh, green tinges.
The flavour is intense with lime, passionfruit and white peach, all perfectly integrated with the attractive, soft oak characters from the time spent in French barrels.
The palate displays generous passionfruit and nectarine flavours, with the Tasmanian component adding crisp grapefruit flavours, mineral notes and great length.
Best in its youth, this wine will also reward cellaring of up to 3 years.
Taltarni Three Monks Fumé Blanc 2010 is a food friendly wine that would match perfectly to a number of seafood dishes as well as soft Asian plates.
Taltarni is one of the Australian pioneers of Sauvignon Blanc. Taltarni’s Three Monks Fumé Blanc 2010 is crafted from carefully selected, low yielding vines grown in Taltarni’s vineyards in
Victoria’s Pyrenees and Tasmania. 60% of the blend was fermented in stainless steel, using two different Sauvignon Blanc yeast strains to enhance the tropical and passionfruit flavours. The
remaining 40% of the blend was barrel fermented in French oak, then batonnaged weekly for nine months; enhancing the complexity, mid-palate weight and spiciness of this delicious wine.
