Olivers Taranga Mencia is made from a lovely Spanish/Portuguese grape that is a relative newcomer to Australian shores.
Gorgeous in the glass, with deep purple hues, it presents on the nose with lifted cherry fruit and aromatic spices backed by cacao and dried herbs.
The palate is textured with well-weighted fruit. More spices, both sweet and savoury add depth and dimension to the wine. Long, supple tannin rounds out the wine nicely with just the right acid lift.
