Oliver's Taranga 2013 Grenache

I was all set to write about the rather lovely 2015 Oliver's Taranga Vermentino, a quintessentially refreshing summer wine, when I opened this juicy red from the same McLaren Vale producer and decided I liked it even more. Grenache is a grape that is often over-looked in favour of shiraz, but it flourishes in warmer climes and produces vibrant, spicy, medium-bodied reds that are perfect for pairing with Mediterranean-style cuisine, and restrained enough to enjoy on their own. This is outstanding. $30.
