Oliver's Taranga Vineyards Small Batch Fiano 2016

A light, refreshing, soft dry white without strong character, but it does have subtle charms. Creamy, yeasty, raw cashew and pear. Very drinkable. 

Huon Hooke 90/100

Oliver's Taranga Fiano 2016 
Bright welcoming straw-green; the bouquet has the wild flower/bush/pine aromas seen in other Australian Fianos, the palate following suit with a strong, racy structure embracing both savoury and
fruity nuances - I'll buy Olivers' suggestion of kaffir lime. A mouthfilling wine with attitude and natural acidity.

93 points James Halliday's Wine Companion 2018 edition

Oliver's Taranga Fiano 2016 

It took a little while for the aromas to be coaxed out but once they presented themselves they hit the spot.

Pears and nutty aromas, almost like cashew, some honey and white peach skin. More time reveals some citrus flower and leaf. In the mouth and poached pears drive the bus followed by a subdued ginger and cinnamon like spice. Flavours are long and mouth filling - some delicious textural interest. I'd happily have a couple of glasses.

Drink now.
91/100 - Very good.
