Showing some love to our 2013 Shiraz ferment

We hand-pick the Shiraz for our Silent Showman wines in small parcels of fruit from targeted blocks in the vineyard and at various degrees of ripeness to achieve the desired qualities in our wines. After gently crushing the grapes we transfer them into open vats, add some yeast and a few other goodies to let the fun begin.

The skins from the fermentation rise to the top of the vat above the fermenting juice so several times a day we manually push the cap of skins back into the juice. This can be done a variety of different ways however at Tallis we like to show our grapes and ferments some love by getting down and dirty in the ferment.  Click on the link below to see the two Tanya"s up to their elbows in red must as we nurture our ferments into producing a sensational wine.





200 Reasons to Celebrate



Spring Festival coming soon

During March and April Tallis Wine participated in a variety of tastings and wine expos across Victoria and the response to our wines was phenomenal.

Hoards of new members signed up to the Tallisman Club bringing our membership numbers well over 200. During 2011 we want to reward our long standing and loyal members with an exciting calendar of events and satisfy our new members hungry for Tallisman tastings, dinners and festivities.

We are in the midst of planning a Spring Festival weekend with details to follow in our Autumn Seasonal Magazine. Some of our ideas include a wine and trivia night, barrel tasting day, picnic in the paddock, wine and food pairing dinners at local restaurants, mini wine education sessions just to name a few. Of course we want your ideas too, afterall, the Tallisman Club exists for you.

Let us know of any events you would like on the Tallisman Calendar for 2011. We always love your feedback and ideas.
