THE YEAR THAT
Wine dog Tex got a massive lovegrass dreadlock on his head and we had to shave him.

Never tasted Mencia before? May as well start now! A new variety to Australia, it’s packed with violet florals, cherry syrup, and a bright, punchy, savoury palate. Whip up some Paella and settle in for a long lunch (and lifelong love affair) with this Spanish beauty.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

2019
Jeni Port

Australian tempranillo is still finding its way. Some are too dry red-like, some are too alcoholic, some way too astringent and mean. Oliver’s Taranga chooses to highlight the grape’s generous fruit while maintaining some of the style’s firm structure. This is an enjoyable wine with chocolate and tempranillo’s trademark dark cherries, plums and spice leading to a generous palate. It’s a big wine, it fills the mouth and stays there.
