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!
