WINE & VINTAGE

This is the first release of our Brioni’s Blend! As you know, we like to name our wines after family members, and Brioni had got away without one for too long. We grafted the famous Portuguese variety Touriga over an old Merlot block in 2016. Touriga is super juicy and floral, so we blended it with structured Mataro and generous Shiraz....and Brioni’s Blend was born!

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

Qwine

Let's set the record straight - Brioni is a gun. She's such an easy person to chat and she's not afraid to roll up the sleeves - quite literally. Be it driving the fork truck, lending a hand in the winery or even competing in the world championships for Cross Fit, she also finds time to be a mum. Respect! This wine is named after her - a tribute to the mums ripping in and making the most of life.

A curious blend of Touriga, Mataro and Shiraz (65/25/10) that works a treat. Grab a piece of protein on your plate and you're in business. I cooked a beef brisket for seven hours before unleashing this and the reward was divine.

Pretty scents waft from the glass with ease. Think dried purple flowers, violets, jubes and raspberry rope. Energetic blueberries and blackberry fruit coat the mouth with ease. There's a magnetism to the juicy fruit and lingering aniseed which draws you in as you keep trying to dissect the expressive aromas. Seeing only old French oak, it's drying to close with soft pillows of chalky tannins coating the palate. All up, it's simply delicious. Empty glasses seem to follow this with ease - an extra point for that!
