THE YEAR THAT
the stars aligned and the vines combined.

A rare beast, the Corrinas’ is a co-fermented field blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, only made in years when both varieties reach optimum ripeness at harvest. Bright, leafy Cabernet dominates the nose, and rich mint-choc fills the generous palate. Perfect for a Sunday lamb roast.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

James Halliday Wine Companion 2019

Co-ferments of shiraz and cabernet are rare, cabernet usually ripening later than shiraz. Not strictly a field blend (the blocks are separate), but picked on the same day. Cabernet
may be the junior partner, but it certainly has its say with its different tannin profile. The bouquet is fragrant,
cassis and blackberry a dancing duo. I’m not as convinced about this wine as its Shiraz sibling.”

A field blend of Shiraz and Cabernet from McLaren Vale only made in years when optimal ripeness is achieved simultaneously.
Another Oliver's Taranga wine not skimping on the hospitality and delivering plenty of generosity. What you see is what you get - the back label says 'rich choc-mint' and it's bang on. Add to that some black fruit for the win. Firmish through the middle with some warmth and a cocoa like tannin to finish.
Steak night gets comfy with this.

Being a co-fermented field blend of shiraz and cabernet, there is a structured frame with a fleshy core. Faint leafy cabernet elements filter through the length of the wine, though the defining character is one of flesh and ripe berry fruit. It has density and softness and a surprising coolness to the fruit. The wine over delivers for the price
