Expert Reviews

A Great Drink from McLaren Vale...

93 Points

Beautiful savoury characteristics sit behind the wheel here driving you all the way to a happy place. Red fruit early then earthiness, flashes of dark chocolate and fine spices roll in. For a fleeting moment cherry ripe comes to mind as does a whiff of red apple skin but then I revert back to absorbing the spicy finish. Drink now to five years.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Red currant and sour cherry aromas abound melded with forest floor, Christmas spice, ironstone & nettle.

Palate

Lovely supple layers of sweet fruits and savoury elements, chocolate dust and cranberry, all framed with crunchy tannins. Plenty of red fruit and sweet spice. Fresh and vibrant.

Wine & Vintage

2018 is one of the vintages of the century. Perfect ripening, good solid crops, strong winter rain and lack of heat waves made it pretty near perfect.

History

With 100 ha of premium grapevines on the Taranga property, the Oliver family has over 50 blocks representing different grape varieties, clones, soil types & vine ages.
