Description

The HJ Reseve Shiraz is the pride and joy of the Oliver's Taranga team.

The wines that come from this small patch of McLaren Vale are as rich as the family history - the vines in this vineyard were planted by the wines namesake, HJ Oliver, in 1948.

Shiraz is what Oliver's Taranga does best, and this wine is no exception. It is a classic full-bodied Shiraz with rich chocolatey fruit and smooth, silky tannins.

This is the quintessential McLaren Vale Shiraz and great value to boot.

Aromas of violets, blackberry pie, mocha, spice and mineral notes.

Savoury spice, mocha and plummy sweetness through the palate. Layers of flavour, the tannins are fine, silky and integrated perfectly. A wine with plenty of length and mouth-filling generosity.

Named after our grandfather Herbert John 'HJ' Oliver.

95 Points - "Hand picked from the Old Block (planted '48), gently crushed before an ambient ferment with no acid, tannin or sulfur additions, racked to French hogsheads (35% new). Sulfured after mlf. Unfined. A deep crimson. Violet, blueberry, black cherry, anise, boysenberry and nori scents curl their way around a pillar of toasty mocha oak. While apparent, it is far from obtuse, operating as a welcome signpost to the wine's warmth, richness and cavalcade of flavours. Long and generous, without being loud." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

95 Points - "Deep, dark, brooding red/purple colour and a rich dark-chocolate, fruitcake, subtle spice and toasty-oak bouquet. Full-bodied, rich and supple, with ample tannins which are ripe and creamy textured. There is density and gravitas here, the finish drawing out long and satisfying. Good now, but it would certainly reward cellaring." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

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!

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
