Taltarni Cuvée Rosé 2013

I’m really not sure how Taltarni are actually making money from this Cuvée Rosé. Buying from their cellar club will see the below RRP come down by nearly 20%. Even at its full price, this is a bargain…nay….a steal.
A blend of Pinot Noir 52% , Chardonnay 46% and Meunier 2% for seasoning. The fruit harvested from Victoria, South Australia (Adelaide Hills) and Tasmania. Traditional Method of fermentation(s).

Taltarni, Cuvée Rosé, SEA, 2013

Pale copper/salmon with tight, exquisite beading. Developing aromas of macerated strawberries, just shucked fleshy Pacific oyster flesh & shell, sourdough bread crust, red gum honey, maraschino cherry and light rosewater kisses. Intense, driving and powerful. The mousse dissipates like a dandelion flower to seed in the wind, before said oyster rich creaminess only to rein in with tight, fine lines and long length of flavour. Make no mistake, this is a serious sparkling at the price and only just starting to hit peak form. Buy with confidence.

RRP: $26
Alc: 12%
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
