A sensational Shiraz from McLaren Vale and a Gold Medal winner in the prodigious Sydney Royal Wine Show. As years go, it's increasingly obvious that 2002 was an astounding year for McLaren Vale reds and Oliver’s is no exception. Moreover, Robert Parker awards 93 Points “The opaque ruby-colored 2002 Shiraz exhibits terrific fruit intensity, voluminous, beautifully textured, full-throttled flavors, low acidity, and tremendous purity as well as intensity with the oak component kept well in the background”.

Producer

Oliver’s Taranga have a long and distinguished history in the McLaren Vale and celebrated their 170th anniversary in 2011. They have owned and worked some of the prime vineyard land in the area and have consistently produced an impressive range of premium, age-worthy wines since their inception in 1839. They have also provided grapes for use in the making of Australia’s illustrious Penfolds Grange and have done so regularly - for 14 vintages since 1996. The Oliver family’s passion and quality focus in everything they do is displayed in both the wines they produce and the accolades they achieve – they have gained and maintained a 5 star rating from James Halliday’s’ Wine Companion, which is only awarded to outstanding wineries who regularly produce wines of exemplary quality and typicity, where they join some of Australia’s most iconic wineries - Penfolds, Wendouree and Henschke to name just a few.

Region

McLaren Vale is situated south of The Barossa Valley in South Eastern Australia. The local climates vary enormously according to altitude and exposure to the cooling sea breezes. Red grapes flourish here due to the warm climate and varied soil type and the region is best known for soft and juicy Shiraz, old-vine Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The climate is similar to that of the Mediterranean climate with four clear seasons. We can highly recommend the producers Kay Brothers, Clarendon Hills and Shirvington Estate from whom we have some fantastic wines.
