Overview

Taltarni is one of the Australian pioneers of Sauvignon Blanc. Taltarni's Three Monks Fumé Blanc 2011 is crafted from carefully selected, low yielding vines grown in Taltarni's vineyards in Victoria's Pyrenees and Tasmania.

50% of the blend was fermented in stainless steel, using wild ferment and two different Sauvignon Blanc yeast strains. The remaining 50% of the blend was barrel fermented in French oak, then batonnaged weekly for eight months; enhancing the complexity, mid-palate weight and spiciness of this delicious wine.
