HJ Reserve Shiraz 2016

Oliver’s Taranga. McLaren Vale. South Australia.

100% Shiraz

 

Knee deep in generosity and pleasure… (QWinereviews.com).

Ny årgang netop ankommet!

HJ Reserve Shiraz er essensen af McLaren Vale Shiraz. Ypperlig duft med nuancer af kirsebær, mørk chokolade, brombær, hindbær, læder, cigarbox og lakrids og med en super smooth smag med noter af vanilje, bitter mørk chokolade, brombær, blåbær, kirsebær, solbær og lakridsrod.
Vinen er fantastisk nu, men er man tålmodig, så har vinen et enormt lagringspotentiale. Topklasse Shiraz.

HJ Reserve Shiraz er optaget i det prestigefyldte Langton’s Classification of Fine Wines.

Senest bedømt i december 2019.

 

Dette er femtende 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 selv samme vinstokke danner basis for denne Reserve Shiraz.

De samme druer anvendes ligeledes i Australiens nok mest kendte vin Penfolds Grange. Små 20 gange har Oliver’s Taranga leveret druer til Grange. Intet andet McLaren Vale winery har opnået denne prestigefyldte anerkendelse.

Noter fra vinmageren

This is the fifteenth release of our Langtons Classified HJ Reserve Shiraz. HJ is picked from the very best parcels of old vine Shiraz on the Taranga vineyard– it has been barrel selected and bottle aged for optimum enjoyment. Named after our grandfather Herbert John ‘HJ’ Oliver, we know he would be very proud of his namesake wine.

Vintage

The 2016 vintage was a low-cropping one, and this resulted in exceptional intensity of flavour, and a spectacular follow up to the Halliday 97 pointed 2015 vintage.

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

Knee deep in generosity and pleasure. McLaren Vale Shiraz layered on thick. Nothing but big love for this.

From vines planted in 1948, cedar, a dusting of herbs, rubs of earth and charcoal before dark chocolate and dense dark berry fruit take the reigns. If you like ’em generous, here’s your weapon. The fruit rolls around the mouth like a big ball of melted chocolate. Tremendous width and length move at ease with baking spices clutching to a long and rewarding finish. It’s only early days too – there are years ahead of this beauty.

Drink to ten 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!
