Taltarni, Sparkling, Brut, 2012


Light straw to pale onion skin in colour. Funky perfume complexity with egg shell and all spice seasoning, creamed honey, baked biscuits, grilled nuts and light red fruits. A refined mousse sits atop a textural palate with toasty, grilled peach stonefruit and roast cashew nut tempered by zesty lemon/lime and green apple acidity that continues to drive the palate on. Beautifully balanced and a joy to taste.

RRP: $26
