Overview

Elegant in Style, Elegant in Colour

Taché, the French term for “stained”, refers to the rare winemaking method used since 1985 by Taltarni to create this fine lightly tinted sparkling wine. Made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the delicate salmon pink hue is achieved by adding a hint of red wine liqueur to the finished tirage wine at disgorgement. Taltarni Brut Taché has gained a reputation for its elegant style.

Expert Reviews

Fruit from the colder bits of Victoria and the Adelaide Hills, and some of the best bits of Tasmania, fizz around politely but cheekily in this bonnie glass. The naughty salmon hue is the result of a little red wine being added to provide the taché - the stain. It has the dry, husky aroma of a field of wheat ready for harvest, with that red blush helping to accentuate the strawberry side of the Pinots. It has a delightful measure of sweetness – not too much - to counterpoint the dry tannins of the Pinot meunier, and that stretched grainy phenolic which makes you crave more than hors doeuvres and crudités."
