Senest bedømt i april 2019.

 
Dette er fjortende frigivelse af Oliver’s Taranga Reserve Shiraz. Vinen er lavet på de bedste parceller af Oliver’s Tarangas Old Vine Shiraz og for lagret på flaske for at opnå den optimale smag og dybde.

Denne ultra premium Shiraz er lavet som en hyldest til HJ “Bert” Oliver, hvis visioner, engagement og passion for vin og dyrkning af druer af særlig høj kvalitet, har gjort det muligt for Oliver’s Taranga at blive, hvad det er i dag. Det begyndte med HJ’s plantning af “Old Block” Shiraz på Oliver’s Tarangas ejendom i 1948, efter at han kom hjem fra hans tjeneste hos RAAF eskadrille 458 under 2. Verdenskrig. Druer fra selvsamme vinstokke danner basis for denne Reserve Shiraz.

De samme druer anvendes ligeledes i Australiens nok mest kendte vin Penfolds Grange. Hele 14 gange har Oliver’s Taranga leveret druer til Grange. Intet andet McLaren Vale winery har opnået denne prestigefyldte anerkendelse.

Noter fra vinmageren

When we got Langton’s Classification listing this year for the HJ it has gone mental. We are selling out after less than 3 months. Good problem to have!! (Corrina Wright, Winemaker)

Vintage

Over the 174 years plus that we have been growing grapes on the Taranga property, we haven’t seen an earlier finish to vintage. Well, not it living memory anyway! Usually we will harvest in February & March- but in 2015, we finished on the last day of February. Unheard of !! We had very low crops and a warm year, which speed up ripening. ‘Old Block’ handpicked 25th of February 2015, ‘South Block’ handpicked 23rd of February 2015.

Aroma

Cherry, blackberry compote, rum n’ raisin chocolate, sweet vanilla, spices and mocha.

Palate

Bright blue and black fruited, savoury spice, mocha through the palate. Dense and flavoursome, the tannins are silky and integrated, with sage and black currant characters, framing this gorgeous expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz.

Oak treatment

30% new French Oak, 20 months in barrel

Cellaring

Drink now to 2030

 

Fra vinskribenterne

“Hand-harvested, Olivers Old Clone planted ’48, destemmed and crushed, 3 days cold soak, wild yeast open-fermented, 10 days on skins, matured in French hogsheads”.
“The quality of the 70yo estate vineyard is immediately obvious, the wine with a rare multiplicity of aromas and flavours spanning the earth and sky; old, polished leather, dark chocolate and rich, dark fruits, all caught in a silken web of purple and black fruits by ultra-soft, but persistent, tannins.”

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!
