Olivers Taranga Shiraz Cabernet

Being a co-fermented field blend of shiraz and cabernet, there is a structured frame with a fleshy core. Faint leafy cabernet elements filter through the length of the wine, though the defining character is one of flesh and ripe berry fruit. It has density and softness and a surprising coolness to the fruit. The wine over delivers for the price

91/100 Toni Paterson

Corrina's McLaren Vale Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon

A co-fermented field blend only made in years when both varieties reach optimum ripeness, this interesting wine has aromas of dark fruits, chocolate, cedar and a little cigar box. The palate is generous and beautifully balanced and while this is delicious now it will only become even more complex over time.

Rating 93 - James Halliday Wine Companion 2018 edition

Produced from estate vines planted 7-70 years ago. Shouts McLaren Vale from the rooftops as black fruits and black chocolate dance around the medium to full-bodied palate, tannins and a swish of oak relegated to observer status. A unique regional style in world terms, its best stretching out years ahead. 14.5% alc. James Halliday

Oliver’s Taranga ‘Corrina’s’ McLaren Vale Shiraz Cabernet 2015: This is lithe, impressive length and depth the balance en pointe it reaches deep into the soul 96 points and value at $32 Tony Keys

A wine genuinely "made" in the vineyard in the vintages when shiraz and cabernet ripen simultaneously - so we don't see this gem every year.  Crafted as a field blend, co-fermented, shiraz juice and cab skins making for a unique style according to winemaker Corrina Wright.  The thrill in this blend is how the cabernet's leafy/briary aromatics and subtle choc mint biscuit seam through the wine from start to finish.Delish. 4 1/2 stars $32 Tony Love.

Oliver’s Taranga Vineyard Corrina’s Shiraz Cabernet 2015

Rich generosity makes this easy to love. Co-fermentation of the two varieties results in a carefully integrated marriage. Enjoy its sexy mid-palate roll of redcurrants and blackberry in a tight tango, while the combination of black tannin and shiraz pepper adds firecracker pops for a finale. David Sly 2017
