AROMA
Talcum powder, a squeeze of lemon over fresh fish, mandarin, honey, fresh lychee and oyster shell. Makes your mouth water like rain on warm asphalt....or maybe that’s just me!!
PALATE
Zesty lemony acid, fresh honey florals and sea breeze, touch of fruit tingle on the finish. Talcum powder tannins give a savoury line. No brainer with fresh seafood!
WINE & VINTAGE

A native of Italy, Vermentino is generating a lot of interest in the wine community due to its heat tolerance and ability to produce beautiful crisp and fresh wines, perfect for the Australian palate. 2021 was a glorious vintage, one of the best for decades- and the vermentino excelled.
Made with natural yeast and no oak.

HISTORY

With 100 ha of premium grapevines on the Taranga property, the Oliver family has over 50 blocks representing different grape varieties, clones, soil types & vine ages. Each vintage, different varieties & blocks will show their strength and from this has been born the ‘SMALL BATCH’ range. Made in small batches of less than two tonnes, these wines have been handcrafted to speak of both the variety and the vintage in which they have been produced.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

2021
Huon Hooke

Very pale colour with a peppery, young, still-emerging aroma, which is also faintly grassy. The palate is delicate, fresh, crisp and vibrant, with straightforward but attractively delicate flavour. It finishes clean and dry and very refreshing.
