Taste- Tony Love, August 2013

Oliver's Taranga 2013 Vermentino

McLaren Vale, SA, $24

OT's small batch range includes this and a fiano, both keen early players in this territory. Wild ferment and some lees (yeast solids) influence have given this a true midway path between crisp and crunchy and more intense styles. The result is most pleasing, a lovely tension of richmeets bite with a mix of white nut over white pear and nectarine fruits.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars 'Small yet spectacular'

Value: Very good
Food:
 Robust fish stews
