M53 Shiraz 2014

Oliver’s Taranga. McLaren Vale. South Australia.
100 % Shiraz.

 

Fantastisk topklasse Shiraz. Dyb i farven og høj viscositet og med en ekstraordinært god duft, der fortæller en historie om et langt liv levet i den gode muld i en af Australiens allerbedste marker. Det er ikke for ingenting at netop disse druer også er at finde i ikoniske Penfolds Grange. Duftnuancer af bl.a. tobak, tovværk, chokolade, vanilje, ristede nødder og solbær byder en velkommen. Smagsoplevelsen følger op med noter af karamel, kaffe, chokolade, røde bær, blå bær, blommer, kirsebær, lakrids og en charmerende afslutning af sprød chokoladekiks 🙂

En super smooth vin, der godt nok stadig er i sin ungdom, men som allerede nu, og i de næste mange år vil byde på himmelske mundfulde.

Senest bedømt i juni 2019.

 

Oliver’s Taranga’s top vin. Kun lavet i exceptionelle år. Dette er kun anden gang at Oliver’s Taranga laver denne yderst sjældne top top vin. Første gang var i 2010.

 

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 et hav af gange. Der er kælet for alle detaljer i deres vine, og man fornemmer at hver drue yder sit optimale.

Noter fra vinmageren

A brand in its truest form is simply a way for a farmer to mark and own the fruits of their labour, and our ancestors have long been making a mark on the Taranga property. M53 branded the finest Taranga herd back in 1880 and now, more than 135 years later, it marks Taranga’s finest wine.

Aroma

Blackberry essence, smoky bacon, mulberry, tar, dark chocolate, pepper spice and toast.

Palate

Blackberry compote, sweet spice, cherry cola, rum & raisin chocolate finished with fine long lingering tannins, layers and weight. Super balanced and textured.

History

M53 is the original horse and cattle brand used by our ancestors on the ‘Taranga’ property in the 1880’s. Back then it marked our finest herd, now it marks our finest wine. Released only in exceptional vintages, the
M53 is a rare beast and made in tiny volumes.

Vintage

The 2014 vintage was a warm one, and crops were quite low indeed. These tough conditions are perfect for ripening our 1948 planted Shiraz to perfection. The concentration on the vine has followed through into the wine making this a classic McLaren Vale Shiraz for the ages.

Oak treatment and volume

3 French Hogsheads 100% new.

Region

Taranga vineyard, McLaren Vale. Sourced from the ‘Old Block’, planted by HJ Oliver in 1948. Clone unknown – we call it ‘Oliver’s Old’ locally.

Cellaring

15+ years

 

Fra vinskribenterne

Hand-picked from the Old Block (re-)planted ’48, destemmed, crushed, 3 days cold soak, wild yeast open-fermented, matured in (three) new French hogsheads. Only made in exceptional years, this the second release (’10). Pre-fermentation maceration is one of the keys to a beautifully cadenced wine, almost polished so supple is the fruit and tannin profile. There’s no sense of alcohol intrusion, seemingly less than 14.5%. The French oak has paid its way many times over.

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!
