Description

Established in 1969, Taltarni Vineyards is one of the pioneering wineries of Victoria’s Pyrenees wine region. Owner John Goelet, a direct descendant of the Guestier wine merchant family of Bordeaux, discovered and purchased Taltarni Vineyard after conducting a worldwide search for a site comparable to the great vineyards of Bordeaux. The first wine from Taltarni Vineyards was released in 1977; immediate success followed with the wine collecting gold at the Royal Melbourne Show – an early acknowledgment of the potential of the vineyard. In 1979, Taltarni’s Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded the Los Angeles Times International Best Red Wine, ahead of world greats.
At 37° latitude, the Pyrenees is in a perfect climatic band for the production of high-quality grapes. The rich soils of red clay, quartz, and sandy loam create ideal growing conditions, and the cool nights and warm days allow for slow ripening. Taltarni’s signature labels feature a 17th-century cartouche, a custom-designed medallion that was worn around the necks of ancient civilisations to protect against loss of name and identity. Worn on each bottle, Taltarni’s cartouche presents and protects the identity of the wine. The design on the cartouche, which was a feature of Taltarni’s very first label in 1977, depicts Saint Peter holding the keys to the Kingdom – a metaphor, in this case, for key moments in life.

TASTING NOTES
Displaying a crisp straw colour with a fine green hue, the wine exhibits varietal aromas of guava along with complex mineral and delicate oak notes. Being well balanced with a generous front palate that extends into a mouth-filling grapefruit acid, this wine lingers with a soft creamy finish.
With melon flavours that softly dissipate into honeydew, this wine is a true representation of the fumé style.
