Small Batch Wines | 2009 Tempranillo
Australian Wine Journal, Sept 2010, 91 points
Oliver's Taranga Tempranillo 2009 ($32) Oliver's Taranga believe this is their best tempranillo yet and I'd have to agree. It reveals that classically varietal exotic spice fragrance, with savoury yet ripe undertones of dark berry/plum fruits harmonised by smooth vanilla/chocolate oak. On the palate its surprisingly elegant and medium-bodied (for both region and style) with a fine, long drive of sweet, earthy flavours framed by svelte, prickly temp tannins and beautifully restrained alcohol (13.0%). It's very well composed.

Deep dark maroon
Earth and spice characters. A mineral slate- like hint to the nose.
Mineral tightness on the palate give the 2009 Tempranillo a great line. Strong savoury, meaty and black cherry notes.
