In 1839 William and Elizabeth Oliver travelled to South Australia from Scotland and settled at McLaren Vale in 1841 on land which they named “Taranga”, meaning “middle” in the language of the local Kaurna tribe.
Today the fifth- and sixth-generation descendants of the Oliver family produce ultra-premium age-worthy wines that reflect the unique character of the Taranga Vineyard in McLaren Vale, combining the latest winemaking tools and techniques with the sense of family, history and tradition that comes with over 170 years of local knowledge.
Grapes/Blend: 100% Shiraz
Appearance: Brick maroon.
Aroma: Blackberry leaf, blood plums, quince paste, dark chocolate, mocha, toasty lift.
Palate: Bright lifted cherry berry, mulberry freshness, mouth watering tannins, sweet fruited and dark chocolate to finish. Delish!
Vintage Notes: 2017 was a year where we had some magnificent rains during spring, so the soil profiles were full to the brim come budburst. This meant we had a bumper crop year, with a long slow ripening period.
Cellaring Potential: Drink now to 10 years.
