Oliver's Taranga Vermentino 2017
I like these new Oliver's Taranga labels. They show some personality with a reference to the vintage. 2017 is referred to as 'The year that we didn't start vintage until March!"
This Vermentino release seems a bit off the pace - perhaps that late start has intervened. It smells of pineapple lollies and green melons. The fruit is thin in the mouth and edges on nearly watery through the middle. There's a crisp finish with a dash of lime and a lingering scattering of spice seems to rescue it. Certainly not as polished as its predecessors.
