It’s Coming Up Rosés For The Independents


Taltarni, one of the country’s premier sparkling wine producers, has crafted a méthode-traditionnelle sparkling rosé exclusively for the independent off-premise and on-premise trade. Taltarni Cuvée Rosé 2011 will launch in September, at the start of the festive period. 

“We’re providing these critically important channels with one of our very best sparkling rosés at a price point that isn’t going to be compromised,” explains Adam Torpy, Taltarni’s CEO. “We’ve pulled out all the stops with this wine, from the quality of the wine in bottle to its packaging, which is smart, sophisticated and contemporary, while remaining true to Taltarni’s trademark branding.” 

Chief winemaker Robert Heywood reiterates that the wine quality is exceptional. “It’s a traditional rosé,” says Heywood, “with time on skins producing the colour, as well as the addition of a Tasmanian pinot noir dosage. It has extended time on lees, at least three years, to add complexity. It’s a lighter rosé style, showing greater autolytic and yeast complexities. Our winemaking team is extremely proud of this wine.”

Taltarni’s cool-climate sparklings continue to go from strength to strength, collecting innumerable accolades from national and international shows and reviewers. This addition to Taltarni’s sparkling stable will no doubt reinforce Taltarni’s position as one of the country’s leading sparkling wine producers.

It’s definitely coming up roses this festive season for trade and consumers alike who should, as the Taltarni Cuvée Rosé tagline suggests: celebrate with sparkling rosé!

Taltarni Cuvée Rose 2011 (RRP $24) is distributed by Oatley Fine Wine Merchants on the mainland (02 9433 3255) or available via Taltarni’s website – .

“Easy to forget that Taltarni have some length of history having been established in 1969. I do anyway. Likewise, this shiraz has been produced since 1977, in various guises and styles I imagine. Still has a cork in it too. Historical, in some respects also.

“Mmm, spicy. Pure and lifted fruit expression in the bouquet, much more floral and fruity and fresh than expected with a liberal dusting of sweet cinnamon sugar spice. Super form in the palate – a bolting, slender, luscious slit of red and dark fruits given a dose of pepper with silky but enlivening acidity and ripe, supple tannins. Great shape, in your face, for immediately appreciated drinking, even with the fortitude of pencil-shavings-oak-with-nougat-sweetness. Finishes again with pencil shaving kind of smoky savouriness and a touch of eucalyptus. Stood out in a long bracket. Personality.”

Taltarni Taché, The Pink Diamond of Sparkling Rosés

Press Release (16/05/2012):

Taltarni’s fully integrated trade- and social media-driven “Your Moment to Sparkle” competition for Taché, Australia’s number one selling sparkling rosé within its category*, came to a climactic close on Tuesday, May 1st.

Competition entrants were required to describe a sparkling moment in their life, in 20 words or less, to win a Holloway Diamonds pink diamond pendant valued at over AU$8,500.

There were three pink diamond pendants to be won in one of three ways:

1. The “People’s Choice”, as voted by fellow Facebookers

2. “Taltarni’s Choice”, as voted by Taltarni Vineyards

3. Random Selection, as chosen by a random generator

The competition response, both in size and calibre, exceeded expectations. With just under 4,000 “sparkling moments” submitted, the entries ranged from personal, intimate moments to proud moments of achievement to celebratory moments with loved ones.

The winner of the “People’s Choice”, an award designed to bolster the competition’s virality, generated 2,189 Facebook “shares” (recommends and sends) and 404 unique comments. The monthly minor prize draws, each involving 100 entrants being selected at random to receive a Taché Sparkling Moments Gift Box, also created surges in competition interest and excitement throughout the campaign. The winning entries can be viewed at .

The competition homepage was “liked” by 6,055 Facebook users, while the competition entries as a collective generated a phenomenal 15,000 Facebook “shares” and 8,000 Facebook comments. The total brand reach of these figures equates to approximately 4.5 million targeted Facebook eyeballs.

It was a nationwide competition, with promotional stock available in all Dan Murphy stores as well as other fine wine retailers. Each bottle of Taché “wore” a pink diamond neck pendant, advertising and promoting the competition via QR code at an in-store level. The competition was also supported by online advertising, window displays and in-store POS. It ran from February 1st, 2012 to April 30th, 2012, covering Valentine’s Day, Easter and “diamond month” in April.

Both Taltarni and Holloway Diamonds are aspirational, lifestyle brands that produce some of the finest pink sparkling products within their respective field. Taché is the French word for “stained”, which refers to the fact that the wine is “stained” with red wine. A sparkling pink diamond pendant promotion helped to reinforce that Taché is, in actuality, a pink sparkling within the minds of consumers.
