Special Offer - 2004 Oliver's Taranga Shiraz
96 Points - Jeremy Oliver "A finely crafted and superbly structured Shiraz whose slightly closed and withdrawn bouquet gradually unfolds layers of brooding, briary fruit and tightly balanced oak. Long, evenly balanced and sumptuously fruited, its deliciously..."
This double Gold-Medal winner, Cabernet/Shiraz blend from the brilliant 2002 vintage was vinified in open fermenters, creating a brilliantly integrated wine. Robert Parker describes the ’02 as “A combination of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Shiraz the 2002 Blend offers copious quantities of black currant, coffee, blackberry and melted liquorice, and smoky aromas as well as flavours."
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.
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.
