Tache is a French word meaning stained
, the rare method used by Taltarni to fashion their sparkling Rose. The moniker Brut Tache can also be read as a metaphor for hard yakka
, a reference to the effort required to grow quality grapes and make good wine. Taltarni assemble their finest fruit, picked off vineyards dedicated to yielding grapes exclusively for superior sparkling wines. Cuvée Rosé's
pretty pink hue and elegant complexity are achieved by adding a dash of red liqueur to the tirage wine at disgorgement.
Taltarni became known for producing extraordinary sparkling wines very early on in their history. The estate's highly specialised vineyards in the Pyrenees contribute the backbone of fruit for Brut Tache. An assemblage of the holy trinity varietals, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, are drawn from mature vineyards, mainly in the premiere viticultural precincts of Victoria and Tasmania. Taltarni focus on encouraging full development of fruit, good varietal definition and refreshing natural acidity. Fermented in its own bottle and matured on yeast lees according to true Methode traditionalle, Cuvée Rosé is a sophisticated wine with mouth filling berry flavours that's simply beautiful to behold.
Engaging salmon pink colour, a fine persistent bead. Lively bouquet, red currants and rose petal, floral, strawberry aromas over complex nougat and yeast characters. Richly layered with elegant red berry fruits, cherries and savoury biscuit flavours, Brut Tache shows exquisite length, finishing flavouful and clean with just the right amount of lingering dryness.
