Oliver's Taranga Tempranillo 2014 (McLaren Vale SA)
With 300 acres of premium grapevines on the Taranga property, the Oliver family has over 50 blocks representing different grape varieties, clones, soil types & vine ages. Each vintage, different varieties & blocks will show their strength and from this has been born the ‘SMALL BATCH’ range. These wines have been handcrafted to speak of both the
variety and the vintage in which they have been produced.
Tempranillo is fast becoming a preferred variety in McLaren Vale, with its more
savoury notes and rustic charm. We use old French oak only on this wine,
letting the varietal characteristics stand out. The 2014 vintage was a warm one, and
crops were quite low indeed. This resulted in exceptional intensity of flavour. Again, only a very small portion of the Tempranillo was made, don’t say I didn’t warn you!!
WINEMAKER: Corrina Wright, 6th Generation family member
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Tempranillo (TEMP- PRA-NEE-OH)
100% McLaren Vale, Deep dark cherry red
Loads of spiced plum, cherry essence plus a real blackberry jam and cream on a warm scone note! Makes the mouth water.
Spiced plum continues on the palate, medium bodied with a generous dose of tannin to finish. Savoury with cherry liqueur notes.
