Vermentino

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.
