Overview

Oliverhill is a small boutique winery located in McLaren Vale South Australia (McLaren Vale has been referred to as the middle palate of Australian wine). Linda and Stuart Miller own this winery, which was founded in 1973, and is near the spectacular Onkaparinga Gorge National Park. They specialise in premium quality, limited production reds. Specifically, a single vineyard Shiraz, "Jimmy Section", coming from a small 5-acre plot planted 30 years ago; a Cabernet Sauvignon, grown on the lower section of the same vineyard along with some Durif; and a Grenache, sourced from the "Bradey Block" vineyard of old bush vines some 80 years old.

Expert Reviews

94 points Robert Parker

"A prodigious, decadently rich effort, Oliverhill’s 2003 Shiraz Jimmy Section (15% alcohol) is a 100% Shiraz aged in French oak, of which one-third is new. It offers up a luxurious aromatic display of loamy earth, new saddle leather, blackberry liqueur, charcoal, and barbecue spices. Layered, chewy, full-bodied, and opulent with extravagant richness, sweet, supple tannin, and low acidity, this is a knock-out Shiraz to drink over the next 5-12 years."

Winery Tasting Notes

Very deep brick red colour with deep brick red hue. The nose reveals notes of prune, spice, liquorice, mocha and coffee over a slightly smoky endnote. The palate is mouth filling, with flavours of spice, liquorice and black pepper. Chalky tannins, moderate palate length with very ripe fruit characteristics emerging. Long aftertaste of spice and white pepper.
