Top Gold & awarded Australia's BEST sparkling rosé  - Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships 2015
 
94 Points: James Halliday Wine Companion 2016 
 
"An engaging interplay between the wonderfully tangy notes of Morello cherries, wild strawberries and pink grapefruit and the gently silky, softening influences of a few years of yeast age. The result is seamless, having attained that magical moment in its evolution where vivacity and grace find comfortable union. It has texture, persistence and wonderful acid line. Still one of the best value roses on the shelves." 
 
 
Wine Advocate 90 points, October 2007
"The Non-Vintage Brut Tache is a delightful, well-priced sparkling wine composed of 52% Chardonnay, 41% Pinot Noir, and 7% Pinot Meunier. A dash of red wine liqueur is added to the finished triage wine at disgorgement to create the salmon pink color. The nose offers rose petal, peach, apricot, and wheat thin scents leading to a sparkler with a steady, persistent stream of small bubbles and red berry and nutty flavors. On the palate the wine is dry and refreshing, with a long, clean finish."
 
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points; May, 2012
"A pretty salmon color with small, scintillating bubbles. This pleasantly dry Champagne blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier is full of ripe strawberry and a hint of tart, zesty currant."
 
From the Winery:
 
Region: Victoria 65%, South Australia 24%, Tasmania 11%
Variety: Chardonnay 53%, Pinot Noir 44%, Pinot Meunier 3%
Taltarni’s vineyards in the Pyrenees are the source of two highly coveted sparkling wines - Taltarni Brut and Taltarni Taché.
 
Taché is the French word for ‘stained’. At disgorging Taltarni Taché is stained with red wine, which imparts the unique taste and elegant salmon colour. Taltarni’s Taché 2011 is a blend of three classic sparkling wine varietals Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
 
Winemaker Comments:
2011 was one of the best growing seasons for sparkling fruit Taltarni has ever experienced in its illustrious history. We had an extended cool summer, with moderate 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.
This wine has developed lovely structure and secondary yeast characters because of its time on lees, displaying a hint of bread on the nose, which is balanced with a creamy texture. The addition of a dosage liqueur of aged Pinot Noir at disgorging, produces beautiful complementary strawberry and rose petal aromatics and a balance of acidity and sweetness, which results in a truly elegant sparkling rosé.
