A Victorian flagship effort in the uniquely Australian experience of icon Shiraz Cabernet wines. Taltarni blends modern Australian winemaking with traditional French vinification practices, encapsulating the philosophy of forming a nexus between new and old world methodologies. Taltarni Reserve is an accord of two noble red varietals which have brought Taltarni international renown. Grown to superior Pyrenees vineyards, Cabernet lays down the solid structure and contributes profound berry perfumes, Shiraz brings flesh and adds piquant aromatic spice.
Identifying the right proportions for each wine and assembling the finest parcels are a labour of love for the Taltarni team. The final wine represents flawless balance and impeccable structure while delivering the requisite voluptuousness, richness and full bodied profile that is distinctly Pyrenees. Grapes are harvested to optimal flavour development and balance of ripe tannins. Batches are kept separate, destemmed and crushed to fermenters for vinification on skins over the course of two or three weeks, followed by an old fashioned basket press into a high proportion of new French oak barriques. After completion of malolactic, components are assembled and returned to barrel for eighteen months. Alcohol 14.1%
TASTING NOTES
Deep brick red colour, darkened robes. Intense blackcurrant bouquets and distinctive Pyrenees mint notes, integrated toasty, mocha and cigar box of oak. A superb balance of fruit freshness, blackberries and spiced plum, cocoa and carob notes over a length of firm but silky tannins which are recognizably Taltarn. A beautifully structured and proportioned wine to accompany grand cuisine.

More About Taltarni Winery
Taltarni is one of the earliest vineyard sites in the Pyrenees, originally planted to the classic varietals, immediately establishing a reputation for impressive robust reds and premium quality sparkling wines
The rebirth of Taltarni Vineyards in 1972 was something of a renaissance for the Pyrenees, a winegrowing region that had slipped into a nadir after a vticultural history which dates back to the mid nineteenth century. Today, the Taltarni Estate's fundamental philosophy is to produce distinctive, well-balanced premium varietal wines with recognizable regionality and estate styling. Taltarni»
