Tony Love, Herald Sun, 2011

Herald Sun
★★★★ - A cut above

This Italian variety is showing increasing interest and Oliver's has been one of its champions with its latest release showing properly distinctive personality from start to finish. A fino-like aroma that the winemaker describes as "pine nuts and lemon rind" is bang on, but more happens on the palate with decent medium-bodied weight and texture filling the mouth. Captivating.
