DJ Reserve Cabernet 2016

Oliver’s Taranga. McLaren Vale. South Australia.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

“This is a Cabernet in a great place. Well played Corrina Wright”.(QWinereviews.com).

Eminent og super smooth australsk Cabernet Sauvignon. DJ Reserve Cabernet 2016 oser af den der “reserve feel” og byder på en vidunderlig duft af kostald, krydderurter, peberfrugter, læder, sandeltræ og blommer akkompagneret af en suveræn afbalanceret smag med noter af mynte, krydderurter, solbær, mørke kirsebær og dragende mørk chokolade.
Vinen er ganske enkelt fænomenal nu og har nogle store år foran sig.

Noter fra vinmageren

Vintage

The 2016 vintage was a low-cropping one, and this resulted in exceptional intensity of flavour, and a spectacular follow up to the 2015 vintage. The ‘Old Block’ Cabernet Sauvignon was picked on the 13th of March 2016.

Aroma

Sweet vanillan, char, mulberry jelly and choc mint biscuits.

Palate

Pop a lamb roast in the oven quick! Plenty of chewy tannin, mint jelly, gravy, black currant, anise, cherry berry and dusty tannins to round out the palate. Chocolate and toasty, plenty of structure and aging potential for those who have the patience to wait.

Oak treatment

30% new French Oak – the DJ spends 20 months in barrel

Cellaring

10+ years

 

Fra vinskribenterne

This is a Cabernet in a great place. Well played Corrina Wright.

Beautiful weight and salivating density the hallmarks of this wine.
Black currants, roasted peppers and dark chocolate lead the charge. Sift deeper for licorice and tomato leaf. Dried herbs and a suggestion of meatiness deliver a wine exuding persistence and poise all at the same time. Firmish dusty like tannins point to a long future. I tasted this over a couple of days only to see it unfurl beautifully. A couple of more years in bottle will only be of benefit. All up, impressive stuff!

Drink 2021 to a decade+

94/100. QWinereviews.com

****

Machine-harvested, berry-sorted, light crushing, 3 days cold soak, wild-fermented, the fermentation finished in French hogsheads (35% new). Super-generous, super-regional, with lashings of dark chocolate and juicy cassis fruit, the tannins generous but supple.

Beskrivelse

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!
