Small Batch Wines | 2006 Grenache
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, Jun 2008, 91 Points
I've never had a wine from Olivers Taranga before but I've certainly heard of them.This is a small batch make of around 250 dozen and includes a splash of Shiraz (5%). Appetising to smell with milk chocolate, raspberries, a touch of earthiness and some cinnamon oak spice. It's just medium bodied with flavours of milk chocolate, raspberries, nuts and sort of gentle earthiness. With light sandy tannins and good freshness it has a degree of elegance and finesse and yes, there's a slight warmth from alcohol on the finish, but it closes dry and long.Sensitively made with plenty of interest - a fine interpretation of Grenache.

Medium dense maroon with a red tinge.
An earthy mineral quality. A beautifully perfumed wine.
Medium bodied with fine mineral acid & earthy tannin complexity. Great oak integration. Very reflective of the variety in its pure form.
