Oliver's Taranga Shiraz 2015 (McLaren Vale SA)
The Year That..... vintage finished before summer did.
Over the 174 years plus that we have been growing grapes on the Taranga property, we haven’t seen a earlier finish to vintage
ever. Well, not it living memory anyway. Usually we will harvest in February & March- but in 2015, we finished on the last
day of February. Unheard of !! We had very low crops and a warm year, so everything was ripe super early.
Awards & Accolades:
2015 Oliver’s Taranga McLaren Vale Shiraz 21/74 This wine is regional to a tee, and the powerful, vibrant blackberry fruit is greatly enhanced by fine, savoury tannins. It’s a delightfully opulent red that can be enjoyed now or over the next ten years. ($30.00) ★★★★☆ Lester Jesberg
Oliver’s Taranga Vineyard Shiraz 2015
Big generosity in a fresh, modern take on old vine McLaren shiraz, bridging the divide between skinny new-school and traditional styles. The mid-palate is soft but has a long line. There’s depth of flavour but also immediate approachability. It’s a well-made crowd-pleaser, and as an entry level to the impressive Oliver’s Taranga brand, it represents superb value for money.
