2018 Brioni’s Blend
Bright and light on the palate. Fresh berry quince floral flavours, with plenty of chalky tannin to frame the palate. This is all fruit and all good!

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!
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.
65% Touriga, 25% Mataro, 10% Shiraz
