Grenache 2015

Oliver’s Taranga. McLaren Vale. South Australia

100% Grenache

 

Super flot og smooth Grenache, man får lyst til at tage et glas til af. Rig krydret duft med nuancer af peber, hindbær og nektarin og en varm og frugtdrevet smag af blandt andet ribs, granatæble, stjernefrugt og hindbær. En vin der kalder på frisk mozzarella, basilikum, grillede artiskokker, pizza på grillen og andet guld fra det italienske køkken.

Senest bedømt i januar 2018.

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

2015 was one of the earliest and fastest vintages we have on record at Taranga! For the first time our Grenache, usually one of the latest varieties to ripen, was picked in February instead of March.

Aroma

Crunchy bright sour cherry, forest floor, ironstone & nettle.

Palate

Lovely acidity and freshness, sweet fruited and crunchy tannins. Fresh and vibrant. Perfect with wood oven pizzas or a charcuterie plate!

The year that…. Don received the ‘Triple Crown’ Our fifth generation viticulturist Don Oliver, is a proud grapegrower not only for Oliver’s Taranga, but for many other wineries. He has been supplying Penfolds wines for decades, and in 2015 was awarded the Penfolds Grange Growers Triple Crown. This very elusive and sought after award recognises growers who have supplied grapes for Penfolds Grange for three years in a row. Don was the first grower from McLaren Vale to receive the award, and the tenth grower ever to be awarded.
 

Fra vinskribenterne

A light bright cherry red. Raspberry fruits a little spice. Fruit-driven. Rich but balanced, and the acid and tannins keep the wine fresh. This should age nicely too.

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!
