2013 Oliver’s Taranga Fiano

wine

Review: 90/100

Type: White

Vintage: 2013

Winery: Oliver's Taranga McLaren Vale Winery

Region: McLaren Vale

RRP: $24.00

Put this spritely white in your notebook for spring. Winemaker Corrina Wright, a sixth generation Oliver, of Taranga, McLaren Vale, mixes  Italian and Spanish varieties in the family’s extensive plantings of more traditional cultivars. Wright’s fiano, an Italian white variety, is bracingly acidic but also richly textured, with a sweet kiss of residual grape sugar offsetting the high acid. Wright says the very low pH of two needed a little sugar coating. It’s something different and exhilarating for the coming summer.
