Taltarni T Series Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Since the late 60’s Taltarni have been crafting pure examples of wines from the Pyrenees region in Victoria. This aromatic blend is a crowd pleaser that’s destined to find a spot at your next seafood feast. More Sauvignon Blanc dominant so you can expect lifted tropicality like lemon and passionfruit and notes of straw from the Semillon. It presents a lively palate of tropical fruit complemented by zesty acidity and a fresh fruit finish.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a very pale straw with bright green tints. It is fresh and lively with grapefruit, lime blossom and passion fruit notes from the Sauvignon Blanc complemented by straw and guava flavours from the Semillon. The refreshingly zesty natural acidity is perfectly complemented by persistent, sweet fruit and a textural mid-palate from the lees contact. Pair with soft cheese, barbequed seafood and leafy salads.

A very well assembled blend with flavours of grapefruit, guava, blackcurrant bud and passionfruit, it's an attractively textural style, thanks to fortnightly stirring on lees over four months. Value.

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Well-made, tight, crisp style with tropical cut grass aromas, and a fresh and vibrant palate with a zippy acid structure.

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
This reliable Victorian blend has plenty to offer in a slightly more sophisticated mould. You can expect less overt tropical-fruit pop and gentler citrus and grassy notes - the semillon tames the sauvignon effectively. The palate is crisp but smooth, quite dry and pleasingly savoury.

One of the best value blends on the market, this is a zesty pink grapefruit and lemon blossom style with a creaminess derived from lees stirring. It's a pretty style with fresh perfume and fine minerality.

Delicate aromas with some tropical notes. Palate has good weight and balance of crisp honeydew melon flavours.

Sweet mix of tropical and stone-fruit aromas, leading to a long, soft, well-balanced palate.

Dry style; very clean and well made, with good texture and lightness on the finish.

Ray Jordan (2007 Vintage) says
Its a nice alternative to the full-on WA style, offering more obvious tropical fruit. THis is a lively blend with dominant crunchy passionfruit, pineapple and citrus juice. It's a simple, easy-drinking quaffer.

Bright golden colour, passionfruit and pineapple aromas and delicious tropical palate with phenolic complexity. Very good wine. Some cellaring potential. 1-2

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Doesn't have enough fruit aromas for a sauvignon blanc-dominant blend, but judged as if it were semillon-predominant, has length and development potential. An Irish tasting note, if you will.

Matt Skinner (2006 Vintage) says
If clean, crisp, summery whites are your thing and you have a crowd to please, this incredibly well-made wine from Victoria's Pyrenees offers good value and superb drinking. The T Series contains mostly sauvignon blanc with just a dash (7 per cent) of semillon, so prepare for a punchy gooseberry and restrained tropical fruit character on the nose. On the palate, it's tight, racy and dry, combining tropical fruit flavours with mouthwatering acidity. Try it with tomato, bocconcini and herb bruschetta.
Matt Skinner's Wine Guide 2011
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; plenty of flavour and attitude; an intermediate style, showing some bottle development, ready for immediate consumption.
