THE STORY OF ‘THE BANISHED’
Since 1841, William Oliver and his descendants have grown premium wine grapes on their McLaren Vale ‘Taranga’ property. However, three brothers from the second generation avoided the trials of family farming, preferring to live the ‘good life’ of drinking, smoking and gambling! Needless to say, they were banished from the family property, but we salute their carefree attitude with this fortified Grenache. Having patiently aged this fortified Grenache for 20 years in a solera of ancient Cognac barrels, we are proud to finally see our customers enjoying this classic Australian fortified wine.
