    Winemaker's Notes:

    Tache is a French word meaning 'stained', referring to the pale salmon color of this enticing sparkling wine. The Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes are estate grown at Taltarni and Clover Hill, Tasmania. Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are picked by hand and Chardonnay at night to retain freshness and acidity. Specially selected Pinot Noir or Malbec is added to 'tache' the wine after disgorgement, resulting in a zesty sparkling wine of rosy hue and a refined freshness. Disgorgement is after a minimum of 18 months on lees in its original bottle.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    Pale, silver-pink color. Racy citrus and red berry scents offer good precision and breadth. Delicately balanced orange, pear and redcurrant flavors are bracing and pure, with fine bubbles and good finishing thrust. A remarkable value in dry, racy sparkling rose; you could easily pay twice as much for Champagne of lesser quality.
