In the hierarchy of prestige sparkling, finesse is everything. This particularly elegant vintage ranks among Taltarni’s finest sparklings yet. A cool season has preserved natural acidity and a new Adelaide Hills vineyard has injected more purity and crunch than ever.Rating 92 - Tyson Stelzer www.tysonstelzer.com (10/JUN/2011)
A blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier from Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, this shows lemon and melon on the nose and palate, with some creaminess and a touch of yeasty character and a fine acid finish. Its great by itself but also goes well with appetisers such as smoked salmon or oysters.Rating 91 - Mike Frost, Courier Mail (13/MAY/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
Chardonnay 66%, Pinot Noir 31%, Pinot Meunier 3%
Pale straw in colour with a fine mousse and persistent bead.
Taltarni Brut 2009 is a creamy, delicate and refreshing sparkling wine with a lifted bouquet of lemon, honeydew and nougat.
The time on yeast lees has given this wine a lovely, textured mid palate and a smooth lingering finish.
Drinking beautifully now but has the cellaring potential of up to five years.
