Small Batch Wines | 2011 Vermentino
Wine Will Eat Itself, Jeremy Pringle, April 2012
2011 Oliver’s Taranga Vermentino
The Vermentino revolution continues to gather steam. A fair number of producers are getting a handle on how to wrangle the best out of this variety. Roll on, I say.
This is chalky and lemony with an odd but enjoyable suggestion of fresh salad. The flavour, though light, builds through the line until we reach some pear. Nice acid too – brisk but not hard. Hints of bath salts and brine on a tart and extensive finish. Great summer drinking and (sea)food friendly as well.Good – Very Good

100% McLaren Vale- Estate Grown
Aromas of lemongrass, lime, sea spray and oyster shell
Extremely zippy, light and refreshing. The thai kaffir lime and zest follows through onto the palate.
