Olivers Taranga Vermentino 2023


Six generations of stubborn, competitive growers and one equally spirited winemaker- that’s the Oliver family. Living smack bang in the middle of McLaren Vale, they flourish on producing perfect parcels of fruit on their 100 hectare ‘Taranga’ property. The vineyard doesnt just supply wine grapes to Oliver’s Taranga, but many other premium wine producers in the McLaren Vale region and beyond. Don and Corrina are both proud members of the Penfolds Grange Growers club, with certain blocks of their Shiraz contributing to Australia’s iconic wine, Penfolds Grange- some of the few that can lay this claim outside of the Barossa Valley. 

Zesty lemony acid, fresh honey florals and sea breeze, touch of fruit tingle on the finish. Talcum powder tannins give a savoury line. No brainer with fresh seafood!

"This Vermentino is part of the small batch range, allowing winemaker, Corrina Wright, to play with a range of new and innovative varieties. 2023 was a cool, low yielding year, so in addition to the McLaren Vale Taranga property, a little fruit was supplied by a mate in the Riverland. An ethereal apple blossom erupts from the glass, then there’s green pears, lemon rind and the savoury tang of lemon myrtle. In the mouth those lovely florals continue – jasmine and chamomile this time, with vibrant citrus and a juicy golden apple acidity. It’s silky and slippery initially, before finishing almost Riesling-like with its crispness. Pair with crunchy fish and chips on the beach." 93pts | Wine Pilot
