Shiraz 2017

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

 

Udvalgt som bedste Shiraz årgang 2017 af The Real Review og Huon Hook og Top Rank og Top Value.

Super flot og nærmest vægtløs Shiraz men med masser af smag. Mesterlig duft med nuancer af cigar box, brombær og blåbær og et ypperligt syre/ sødme samspil med smagsnoter af blå frugter, vanilje, mørk chokolade og lakrids.

Senest bedømt i april 2019.

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

History

Made exclusively from our Taranga vineyard, the 2017 Shiraz shows all of the delicious flavours that you have come to know and love. Made from vines aged 7 to 70 years old, our Taranga Shiraz always delivers.

Vintage

2017 was a year where we had some magnificent rains during spring, so the soil profiles were full to the brim come budburst. This meant we had a bumper crop year, with a long slow ripening period.

Brick Maroon colour

Aroma

Blackberry leaf, blood plums, quince paste, dark chocolate, mocha, toasty lift

Palate

Bright lifted cherry berry, mulberry freshness, mouth watering tannins, sweet fruited and dark chocolate to finish. Delish!

Cellaring

Drink now to 10 years

 

Fra vinskribenterne

From 10 multi-clone estate blocks 8-70yo, the old vines hand-picked, the younger vines machine-harvested and berry sorted, wild yeast-open fermented separately, matured in French (70%) and American (30%) hogsheads. Wow. A mouthful. Happily, so is the wine. Rich and layered, indeed voluptuous, and true to McLaren Vale.

95 points. James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2020.

***

The type of wine you take to share with friends. You pour large, you chat, you laugh, you all walk away happy. A delicious McLaren Vale Shiraz.

Coming off vines aged between 7 and 70 years, a full-bodied wine but not one to clout you over the head. Generous no less, dark fruits and chocolate are framed by fine spices. Touches of caramel and cedar add further appeal.
Great stuff all round – a big thumbs up.

Drink now to ten years.

92/100. QWinereviews.com.

Wine Of The Week AU, January 30 2019.
Gorgeous cherry and raspberry aromas followed by a juicy, expressive palate. Appropriate background oak. Regionally and varietally expressive. Well-made, chocolatey and delicious.

Score: 93 ★★★★ (Toni Paterson, The Real Review).

Udvalgt som bedste Shiraz årgang 2017 og Top Rank og Top Value.

***

A blend of 10 estate blocks up to 70 years old (multiple soils, clones and vines), some with extended maceration, matured for 17 months in French (70%) and American oak hogsheads, 20% new. A grind of pepper on top of generous, creamy blackberry and mulberry fruit, with mocha notes and a savoury frame of ripe but present, textural, earthy tannins. Satisfying and good value.

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!
