Museum Wines | 2001 HJ Reserve Shiraz
The 2001 vintage followed a wet winter and hot summer with shiraz crops of above average quality.
This is the second release of an Oliver's Taranga Reserve Shiraz. Selected from the best parcels of old vine shiraz and has been barrel selected and bottle aged for optimum flavour enhancement.
- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The rich, soft 2001 Shiraz Reserve HJ reveals supple tannin, but also a surprising amount of new oak that pushes the fruit to the background, leaving the wine slightly out of balance at present. Perhaps I tasted it on a bad day. It may become more impressive as it ages, but it did not perform as well as its two siblings.
