A brand in its truest form is simply a way for a farmer to mark and own the fruits of their labour, and our ancestors have long been making a mark on the Taranga property. M53 branded the finest Taranga herd back in 1880 and now, more than 135 years later, it marks Taranga’s finest wine.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

James Halliday Wine Companion 2019

“Only made in exceptional years, this the second release (‘10). Prefermentation maceration is one of the keys to a beautifully cadenced wine, almost polished so supple is the fruit
and tannin profile. There’s no sense of
alcohol intrusion, seemingly less than 14.5%. The French oak has paid its way many times over.”

A full-flavoured, full-bodied wine with good composure. Generous dried cherry, plum and blackberry flavours. The palate has an open nature with red plum flavours and savoury oak accents. It finishes with warm red fruits plus some vanilla bean and chocolate accents. Good energy and richness
