Oliver’s Taranga Fiano 2015

olivers taranga fianoCorrina Wright is not only well respected and loved for her contribution to the Australian Wine Industry but also for her role in keeping the innovative spirit alive at Oliver’s Taranga. She does all this whilst paying homage to the rich McLaren Vale history of the family’s wine heritage.

Sitting amongst the more traditional McLaren Vale fare of Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet, you see her expert hand in the development of the winery’s Italian varietal wines such as this Fiano joined by vineyard companions, Vermentino and Sagrantino. Oliver’s Taranga also offer a couple of stylish Spaniards too with an elegant Tempranillo and more recently, they released a Mencia rose having planted the first Mencia vines in Australia.

If you have not yet tasted Fiano, this is one of the wines you should try.

It’s nuttiness gives it a European character and poise that continues right through to the floral finish. The sensuous curve of soft acid and mouthfilling nectarine and mandarin makes this a go-to wine for pure enjoyment or to share over a meal. A versatile Italian varietal done well!

Winery Spotlight: Getting to know Rathfinny Estate

I had no idea what to expect when I visited Rathfinny Wine Estate by chance last Summer. It was a spur of the moment idea. The vineyard I had initially decided to visit had no time slots left and did not accept visitors without bookings. Fair enough. It was a smaller...
