Taltarni Taché, Australia’s most popular sparkling rosé (Nielsen), is now also its best.
Taltarni Taché was awarded Australia’s Best Sparkling Rosé at The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships 2015. Competition founder Tom Stevenson and fellow judge Essi Avellan MW announced the award on September 2nd, 2015, at Vintners’ Hall in London, in front of over 100 international winemakers, producers and journalists.
Taltarni CEO Adam Torpy was extremely excited to receive news of the award back in Australia. “This is a fantastic result for the entire Taltarni team,” says Torpy, “It is our goal to craft some of the country’s finest sparkling wines, and this accolade is an acknowledgement that we’re definitely on the right track.”
Established in 1969, Taltarni Vineyards is one of the founding wineries of Australia’s Pyrenees wine region in Victoria. An Australian premier sparkling wine producer, Taltarni specialises in cool-climate, méthode-traditionnelle sparklings.
Taché is the French word for ‘stained’. At disgorging, Taltarni Taché is stained with a dosage liqueur of aged pinot noir, which imparts the unique taste and elegant salmon colour. Taltarni’s highly coveted Taché is a blend of the three classic champagne varieties: chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier.
The 2011 vintage was one of the best growing seasons for sparkling fruit Taltarni has experienced in its illustrious history. According to Chief Winemaker Robert Heywood, “We had an extended cool summer, with high rainfall, but little disease, which allowed the fruit to ripen slowly on the vine, creating complex and distinct varietal characters along with succulent natural acidity. The conditions were idyllic.”
