The 2017 Taltarni Sparkling Brut is made méthode-traditionnelle, and displays a delicate bead, enhanced by an extended time on tirage lees. Resulting in a persistent and creamy mousse. Light straw in colour with complex aromas of honey and bright citrus are complemented by elegant aromas of brioche and roasted nuts. A bright natural acidity that lingers on the finish extends the length of the palate, whilst a soft creamy texture fills the mid-palate. Partial malolactic fermentation creates volume and texture, whilst a lower dosage complements the natural acid that lingers on the palate.

Winery & Vintage Info

The 2017 Taltarni Sparkling Brut is a cuvée blend of Chardonnay 56%, Pinot Noir 36%, and Pinot Meunier 8%.

2017 was a warmer year with cool spring and early summer nights which defined this vintage as one that displayed elegant fruit flavour and balanced acid.

Chardonnay was harvested from our western vineyard site with eastern-facing slopes, these blocks have some of the highest elevations across the whole vineyard. The full morning sun and natural shading in the afternoon produces premium Chardonnay with bright natural acid and exceptional drive. The Pinot Noir base wine offers texture and fruit weight which complements the Chardonnay’s crisp acid and definition.

Harvesting fruit at night and pressing immediately helps maintain the fresh vibrant flavours. After a brief cold settling, the juice was inoculated and fermented at low temperatures to maintain freshness and purity. Individual parcels were blended, including a portion aged in large format French oak before being tiraged and allowed to age in the bottle.
