Oliver's Taranga Small Batch Vermentino 2012

Winemaker Corrina Wright is raving about the 2012 vintage, and after checking out the Fiano and now this, I can see why. If the reds follow suit, abd I'm sure they will, start saving your pennies to get amongst them.

To the 2012 Vermentino...

Slight lemon zest and honey aromas. Flavours are clean and crisp with some interest on the palate. There is a little more texture here compared to some other Vermentinos recently reviewed which gives it a point of difference. A point of difference I'm quite partial to to be honest. Some slight spice adds another sphere of delight to another excellent 2012 release from Olivers Taranga.

  1. Amazing drink! Everyone wants to taste this wine and I hope it is from the most demanding vintage wine of Australia. Your blog is pretty good and impressed me a lot.

  2. Thanks for the comment and your kind words. I'm pleased the blog has been of great help to you.
    This Vermentino is one of my favs. So easy to wash down on a hot day. I'll be sure to have a few in December!

    Cheers,
    Steve
