Small Batch Wines | 2013 Vermentino
Jane Faulkner, The Saturday Age, Aug 17, 2013
McLaren Vale is famous for its full-bodied luscious shiraz, but it's also perfect for more alternative varieties. Oliver's Taranga vineyards have been leading the way with selections of those from sagrantino and tempranillo to fiano and vermentino. It is spurred on by winemaker Corrina Wright's love of these wines. The 2013 whites have just bee released and, as this vermentino reveals, they are super fresh and vibrant. Tasting this, I'm craving summer and a bowl of salty fried shrimp. And an ocean view.

Aromas of lemongrass, ginger beer, lime and sea spray
Lifted freshness through the palate with lovely powdery tannin and mouth-watering natural acidity. Lemon grass and kaffir lime, with plenty of texture.
