Oliver's Taranga - Corinna's Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon - Mclaren Vale, SA

A rare beast, the Corrinas’ is a co-fermented field blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, only made in years when both varieties reach optimum ripeness at harvest. Bright, leafy Cabernet dominates the nose, and rich mint-choc fills the generous palate. Perfect for a Sunday lamb roast.

HISTORY With 100 ha of premium grapevines on the Taranga property, the Oliver family has over 50 blocks representing different grape varieties, clones, soil types & vine ages.

WINE & VINTAGE The 2018 vintage was a low-cropping one, and this resulted in exceptional intensity of flavour. A rare beast, the Corrina’s is a cofermented, field blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, made only in years when both varieties reach optimum ripeness at harvest. Bright, leafy Cabernet dominates the nose & rich mint-choc fills the generous palate. Perfect for a Sunday lamb roast.

AROMA Deep cherry berry, smoked meats and tar

PALATE Rich mulberry and mint chocolate biscuit, slippery texture, lively acidity and crunchy tannins.

The year that continued... Our winemaker Corrina got sick of wearing her normal brown workboots, so lashed out and got a bright blue suede pair. By the end of vintage they were more of a dull purple!!
