The team at Taltarni are exceptionally adept at excellent value for money sparklings from their Western Victorian fruit, when they also get to add quality fruit from the Adelaide Hills and Tasmania, they make it extra special. Traditional Method and a blend of Chardonnay 57%, Pinot Noir 41%, Pinot Meunier 2%
Taltarni, Sparkling, Brut, SEA, 2015
Pale straw gold. Rounded, baked spiced apple, yeasty autolytic development, custard tart, red fruit kiss. The palate brings a blousy mousse, with lovely dissipation leading to a focused concentration of flavour and intensity. Solid red cherry fruit to work with the yellow citrus, slightly leathery meaty depth and a dusty, chalky texture. Offers good depth, richness and a decent length to the finish. Ready to go now. Good value.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
