Our lucky Tallisman members can indulge in wine and chocolate this Easter when they receive their Autumn tasting pack. Our Tasting Pack contains several new releases including our long awaited Silent Showman Shiraz 2007. We’ve had extremely positive feedback already from a few lucky enough to receive a sneak preview, with a unanimous decision that this wine is even better than the ’06 vintage. A big call! At this stage the Silent Showman Shiraz 2007 is only available to our Tallisman members and will be increasing in price from the 1st May 2010 to $35 (Tallisman price will be $26.25). Join the Tallisman Club during April to receive your Autumn Tallisman Pack and purchase the Silent Showman Shiraz until the end of April for the insane price of $18.75. Here are a couple of the new releases in the Autumn tasting pack:
Tallis Silent Showman Shiraz 2007 A member favourite, the 2006 Silent Showman Shiraz sold out in record time and we’ve been fielding requests for the new vintage ever since. Here it is in a similar style to the 2006, with incredible mocha aromas, blackberry and chocolate running through the palate, and plump ripe tannins providing a soft rounded structure. A parcel of this wine was barrel fermented in French barriques. Early bottling has captured these flavours, and bottling under screw cap means this wine will retain its freshness for many years to come. This wine is drinking beautifully now and will cellar well for many years, if you can keep your hands off it that is. Screw cap. Tallis Silent Showman Shiraz Viognier 2006 The Silent Showman Shiraz Viognier 2006 is a stunning example of this popular Rhone blend. The 2006 vintage of this wine is a gentle marriage between our rich shiraz and floral viognier. These grape varieties are co-fermented with viognier contributing to approximately 5% of the ferment. Oak influence is subtle with 2 to 3 year old French barrels. The result is a silky textured wine with vibrant colour. The intensely perfumed nose has hints of floral mingling with blackberry and spice aromas and a generous palate with lush tannins and a persistent finish. Screw cap.
Tallis “Shugg’s Folly” Sparkling Viognier 2008 Surprise your wine loving friends with our Sparkling Viognier, a unique style of sparkling wine which Tallis Wine is one of the first to pioneer in Australia. Our Sparkling Viognier is produced in the traditional method where the wine is matured on yeast lees for at least 12 months creating incredible complexity. The stone fruit and honeysuckle of the viognier are layered with yeasty, biscuity characters derived from the secondary fermentation. A creamy, persistent mousse and fine bead provide a delicate mouthfeel with a refreshing acid zing. Serve chilled. Crown seal.
