Fogarty Wine Group has launched its new Tasmanian premium sparkling wine label, Thalia.

The range includes three wines: NV, Rosé and Reserve Cuvée.

The name originates from the Greek mythology figure, Thalia, the goddess of comedy, dance and idyllic poetry.

Chief winemaker Liam McElhinney’s passion for cool-climate winemaking brought him to Tasmania in 2019 where he joined the Fogarty Wine Group at Tasmanian Vintners.

Liam’s Tasmanian wines have attained critical acclaim and he is now excited to be producing the Thalia sparkling wines from some of Tasmania’s most exceptional vineyards.

“I’m really excited to be launching this very special range of sparkling wines,” he says.

“Each of the Thalia wines offer a unique window into just how amazing Tasmania can be for world-class Méthode Traditionnelle.

“From the freshness and instant appeal of the NV, to the complex toastiness of the Reserve Cuvée, these wines showcase just how important careful viticulture, meticulous winemaking and patience is when crafting superb sparkling wines.”

Fogarty Wine Group is a Western Australian-based, family-controlled wine group.

In just over 25 years, Peter Fogarty and his family have created a portfolio of wine assets across Australia.

The brands include Dalwhinnie in the Pyrenees; Lake’s Folly in the Hunter Valley; Deep Woods Estate and Evans & Tate in Margaret River; Millbrook Winery in the Perth Hills; Smithbrook in Pemberton; and Lowestoft, Thalia, Strelley Farm Estate and Tasmanian Vintners in Tasmania.
