Small Batch Wines | 2013 Tempranillo
- Jane Thompson, Fabulous Ladies Wine Society
I was lucky enough to score a sneaky try of this wine prior to it’s release, and I gotta say, the
minute it comes onto the market (which should be quite soon!) you need to get hold of
some from those clever clogs at Oliver’s Taranga.
Seriously juicy-licious, soft and ready to dance the Paso Doble. This wine is a romantic
matador rather than a bullfighter with bravado.
The palate offers up a whole berry cart of lusciousness, and a pinch of spice, with barely
there tannins that do enough to thrill without sticking it’s tongue in your ear.
- Campbell Mattinson, 92 Points- The Wine Front
Full marks for perfume. And life. Indeed this Tempranillo from Oliver's Taranga scores high marks for drinking appeal. The fruit is sweet and there's evidence of musky, choc-like oak, but for sheer drinking pleasure this takes some beating. Cherries and cola, infusions of spice and leather, and a juicy finish. Fresh and , in short, yum. No need to wait. Polished.
