Corrina’s 2016

Oliver’s Taranga. McLaren Vale. South Australia

51% Shiraz, 49% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Fænomenal flot og muskuløs Shiraz/ Cabernet blend i en fantastisk årgang. Denne klassiske australske blend, der kun bliver lavet i de år hvor både Shiraz og Cabernet Sauvignon når optimal modenhed samtidigt, byder på aromaer af blandt andet cigar box, blåbær, brombær, mørk chokolade og mint. Vinen er lavet på udvalgte parceller af Taranga Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon og Shiraz ved brug af traditionel co-fermentering. Resultatet er en meget kompleks vin, hvor strukturen fra Cabernet Sauvignon er perfekt integreret med den rige og dybe frugt fra Shiraz.

Åbn gerne vinen et par timer inden servering eller dekantér den for at give den en mundfuld luft.

Vinen er fantastisk nu og har masser af power til at udvikle sig de næste år.

Noter fra vinmageren

Wine & Vintage

The 2016 vintage was a low-cropping one, and this resulted in exceptional intensity of flavour.
A rare beast, the Corrina’s is a cofermented, field blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, made only in years when both varieties reach optimum ripeness at harvest. Bright, leafy Cabernet dominates the nose & rich mint-choc fills the generous palate. Perfect for a Sunday lamb roast.

Aroma

Deep cherry berry, smoked meats and tar

Palate

Rich mulberry and mint chocolate biscuit, slippery texture, lively acidity and crunchy tannins.

 

Fra vinskribenterne

This is the best I’ve seen of this blend. A delicious wine with serious gravitating pull. Lazy Friday nights on the lounge and a glass of this to cure your work week blues.

Quite rich and generous, I like how this shapes up. Some may see it as too big – I’m pleased I’m not one of them.
Coconut rough, raspberries dipped in dark chocolate, some tar and blackcurrant. There’s a caramel thing peering through just enough to be noticed. Coffeed oak seems to be part of the Oliver’s Taranga landscape of late, something I don’t mind to be honest. The finish is long with some fruit sweetness hitching a ride. I could slurp this long time.

Drink now to eight years.

Om Oliver’s Taranga Vineyards

Oliver’s Taranga beskriver selv en af deres kerneværdier som Passion about everything we do. Det beskriver rigtigt godt den oplevelse, vi havde de gange, vi besøgte Oliver’s Taranga. Vi havde efter et besøg i Barossa Valley fået anbefalet bl.a. Oliver’s Taranga fra folkene i cellar door’en på Greenock Creek Winery. Vi havde ikke hørt om stedet før, men vi er glade for Greenock Creek og så derfor en anbefaling fra dem som muligheden for, at der var noget godt i vente. Og vi blev på ingen måder skuffede. Oliver’s Taranga er et af de sjældne wineries, hvor man føler, at man er på bølgelængde med vinmageren, så snart man tager den første sip af den første vin. Hver vin har noget unikt at tilbyde og er lavet præcist, som man selv kunne ønske sig, at den skulle være. Det er efter min mening meget sjældent. Ved besøg hos mange wineries i McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley og resten af verden for den sags skyld, fornemmer man ofte tidligt om ens egne præferencer og smag bliver mødt eller ej. Selv om man måske virkelig leder med lys og lygte efter de gemte skatte, finder man dem måske aldrig, også selv efter at have smagt hele deres repertoire. Andre gange kan man finde et enkelt eller et par ”lucky punches”, men hos Oliver’s Taranga finder man sig hjemme hele vejen.

History

While they have ‘only’ been making wine since 1994, the folks at Oliver’s Taranga have a history of grape growing in South Australia that goes back over 170 years. In 1839 William and Elizabeth Oliver travelled to South Australia from Scotland. They eventually settled in the McLaren Vale region where they planted vineyards and orchards on their property ‘Taranga’.
It was sixth generation family member and winemaker Corrina Wright who was the first to convince the family, in particular her grandfather, to let her take some of the grapes to make their own wine. It is easy to understand Corrina’s enthusiasm to make wine with the Oliver’s renowned grapes. The family have been winning awards and plaudits for the quality of their grapes since 1857, when William Oliver was awarded ‘the best collection of grapes’ at the local Willunga Agricultural Society Exhibition.
The exceptional quality of the Oliver’s grapes has also given them a close connection to Australia’s most famous fine wine, Penfolds Grange. Growing grapes that are used to make Grange is one of the highest honours that you can have as an Australian grape grower. Some growers will cherish making the grade and having their Shiraz grapes included in the famous Australian wine just once in their lives, a truly great achievement. The folks at Oliver’s Taranga? They’ve had their grapes from their vineyards included in Penfolds Grange fourteen times since 1996! No wonder Corrina was so keen to make delicious wine with such exceptional grapes!
