WINE & VINTAGE

Tempranillo is fast becoming a preferred
variety in McLaren Vale, with its more
savoury notes and rustic charm. We
only use older French oak, letting the
Tempranillo varietal characters sing. 2017
was a cooler and wet year in McLaren Vale,
resulting in slow ripening and excellent
concentration of flavour.

HISTORY

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.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

Toni Patterson, The Real Review

A fragrant, medium-bodied tempranillo with good varietal integrity. Gorgeous dark fleshy fruits with hints of dried olive and dark chocolate, gentle background earthiness and framing tannins. It is plush, supple and concentrated though still with a lightness and an energy. Serve with some rustic fare to mop up the tannins and accentuate the flavours.
