Tasting Notes for the Taltarni T Series Brut
Region: Victoria, South Australia
Variety: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
This NV is a traditional method sparkling made from the classic sparkling varieties: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Taltarni T Series Brut is sourced from various cool-climate regions, predominantly from Taltarni’s Pyrenees vineyard, but also from carefully selected sites in the Alpine Valleys, Adelaide Hills and Tasmania. This particular wine is a Pinot dominant blend and is made up of 60% current vintage and 40% reserve wine that is aged in stainless steel and older French oak.
This wine is a light bronze colour with a pinkish hue due to the Pinot Noir dominance of this particular blend. The bright, fruit- driven wine shows an impressive array of white peach and ripe strawberry flavours with a hint of citrus. The creamy, textural mid-palate extends into a crisp, refreshing finish.
