Grenache 2018

Oliver’s Taranga. McLaren Vale. South Australia

100% Grenache

 

2018 is one of the vintages of the century… (Corrina Wright, winemaker).

Lækker clean cut sprød Grenache med ren klar frugt. En smuk lys farve med masser af duftnuancer af skovjordbær, hindbær, kirsebær, pærer, roser og valnødder. Flot ren smag med noter af granatæbler, kirsebær og jordbær. Eminent syre/ sødme balance og et skønt samspil mellem det friske og det komplekse.

Senest bedømt i marts 2020.
 

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

Crack a bottle, crank the wood oven pizzas and rejoice- 175 years on, and Grenache has finally reached the height of McLaren Vale cool. With all the fragrances of a mushroom foraging tromp through the pine trees, this medium-bodied Grenache is full of spice, earth and forest berry aromas.

Aroma

Red currant and sour cherry aromas abound melded with forest floor, Christmas spice, ironstone & nettle.

Palate

Lovely supple layers of sweet fruits and savoury elements, chocolate dust and cranberry, all framed with crunchy tannins. Plenty of red fruit and sweet spice. Fresh and vibrant.

Vintage

2018 is one of the vintages of the century. Perfect ripening, good solid crops, strong winter rain and lack of heat waves made it pretty near perfect.

Fra vinskribenterne

Grenache can be such a versatile red. Match it with a range of food or even drop it in the fridge to take the edge off it for 15 minutes to enjoy a slurp on a warm night. Here’s a great drink from McLaren Vale.

Beautiful savoury characteristics sit behind the wheel here driving you all the way to a happy place. Red fruit early then earthiness, flashes of dark chocolate and fine spices roll in. For a fleeting moment cherry ripe comes to mind as does a whiff of red apple skin but then I revert back to absorbing the spicy finish. Have with duck, pork, barbecues or after a crappy day at work – a match for all really.

Drink now to five years.

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!
