Corrina’s 2015

Oliver’s Taranga. McLaren Vale. South Australia

51% Shiraz, 49% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Det er altid noget særligt at drikke en flaske vin fra Oliver’s Taranga. Følelsen af uovertruffen kvalitet og klasse og vin, der har noget på hjerte, får man fra start, hvor man står med flasken i hånden til at man hælder den allersidste dråbe ud af den.

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, solbær, blåbær, brombær, mørk chokolade og mint. Man er vidne til et slag mellem de to store drue giganter, der begge ønsker din opmærksomhed, og det ene sekund byder på noter af friske solbær fra Cabernet’en og det andet sekund skyller varme, sødme, chokolade og kaffe ind fra Shiraz. Fantastisk levende vin.

Vinen er lavet på udvalgte parceller af Taranga Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon og Shiraz ved brug af traditionel co-fermentering.

Åbn gerne vinen et par timer inden servering eller dekanter den for at give den en mundfuld luft. Servér gerne vinen ved 20-21 grader for at opnå den bedste balance mellem syre og sødme.

Vinen er super god nu og vil kun blive bedre de næste par år.

Læs om Oliver’s Taranga Vineyards

Oliver’s Taranga leverer druer i absolut topklasse, hvilket er årsagen til, at de som eneste McLaren Vale winery er hædret med Penfolds Grange Growers Perpetual Trophy, og de har leveret druer til Penfolds Grange hele 14 gange. Der er kælet for alle detaljer i deres vine, og man fornemmer at hver drue yder sit optimale.

 

Noter fra vinmageren

The ‘stars aligned and the vines combined’ again for us in 2015. The Corrina’s Shiraz Cabernet is made via a technique called co-fermentation where by the fruit is blended in the vineyard and fermented as one. Rather than making a separate Shiraz wine and Cabernet wine and blending afterwards. This is a very old technique, and is a favourite of our winemaker for this wine. It does mean that the Corrina’s isn’t made every year as we need to make sure that we have Cabernet (typically later ripening) and Shiraz ripe at the same time.

2015 was one of the earliest and fastest vintages on record in McLaren Vale. It was quite low cropping, but the resultant wine was generous.

Deep, dark maroon colour.

Aroma

Smoky toasty notes with bright black fruits and tarry spice

Palate

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

 

Fra vinskribenterne

A co-fermented field blend only made in years when both varieties reach optimum ripeness, this interesting wine has aromas of dark fruits, chocolate, cedar and a little cigar box. The palate is generous and beautifully balanced and while this is delicious now it will only become even more complex over time.

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!
