Reserve | 2004 HJ Reserve Shiraz
TORBWINE, September 2007
Oliver's Taranga 2004 HJ Reserve Shiraz is sealed under cork and will cost $45 when it is released in November. The class of the fruit is obvious from the first sniff, although it is currently dominated by coffee oak and hints of orange peel character. The construction is exemplary with tight tannins and pure, deeply-seated fruit. Coffee oak on the uptake is complemented with clean, juicy-fruit showing blue and black flavours which finish long and intense. It's a muscular-weight, solid yet elegant wine that has a harmonious and refined complexity. A very smart drop; rated as Excellent with **** for value, it should enter its peak drinking window about 2014 and beyond. On my last visit, I rated the 2003 highly, and if anything this is better, so get in early before it flies out the door

Deep, dark maroon.
Intense mulberry and dark Belgian chocolate pepper and spice nuances.
Subtle and elegant fine grained tannins dominate the mouthfeel of this wine-silky and long. The fruit is intense and rich. The balance and complexity of this wine is fabulous.
100% new French Oak
