About The Wine
The Olivers Taranga Sagrantino, with a few years in bottle now, presents a delightful range of aromas and flavours, with some exotic spice to liven things up a bit.
The wine offers a medley of savoury and fruity tones, such as violets, christmas cake, slate, mulberry and blackberry, with bottle age now taking the wine towards the realm of dried fruits and smokey, peppery notes. The tannins have integrated well and are now soft and supple.
Sagrantino is a grape predominantly found in the Italian region of Umbria, although many winemakers around the world (and particularly in Australia) are catching on to its potential to make lovely wines.
About Oliver's Taranga
Five generations of the Oliver family have been farming land in McLaren Vale dating back to the 1840s.
There are now 100 hectares of land under vine on the Taranaga property - Taranga is a corruption of the aboriginal word Tarangk, meaning ‘the middle' which was used by the Kaurna, a local aboriginal tribe.
Under the trailblazing guidance of winemaker Corrina Wright, there are now near 50 blocks of different varieties and clones. A McLaren Vale melting pot!
