Oliver's Taranga Vineyards History
The history of Oliver's Taranga is a good one, firmly intertwined with the history of the Vale itself, with a story spanning back to 1841 when William and Elizabeth Oliver settled on land at McLaren Vale. Whitehill and Taranga farms, the names given to the northern and southern sections of this land, are located 2 km north of McLaren Vale overlooking the township. Taranga itself is a corruption of the aboriginal word Tarangk, meaning ‘the middle', a term used by the Kaurna, a local aboriginal tribe. Vineyards and orchards were planted almost immediately after settlement, alongside sheep and cattle.
Both properties are still run by fifth generation descendants of William and Elizabeth, with the Whitehill property utilized for cropping and grazing of sheep and cattle whilst Taranga, which consists of 110 hectares of land, has been planted to a swathe of different grape varieties.
Oliver's Taranga Vineyard
At it's core the Taranga farm was traditionally run as a pure grapegrowing operation, with the fruit sold off to at least ten different wineries, with the high quality grapes even deemed worthy for the inclusion in Penfolds Grange on numerous occasions. Since 1994 however, a small amount has been diverted into the Oliver's Taranga label, with sixth generation family member Corrina Wright (nee Rayment) the families first every winemaker.
The secret to the success of Oliver's Taranga is it's advanced vineyard management. Whilst gut feeling - based upon years spent in the family vineyard - is the basis for this, technology plays a big part, with radio controlled soil moisture monitoring systems used in conjunction with information gathered from our own weather station to administer the appropriate amount of water from each of the four different water sources available to us. State of the art computer controlled irrigation technology is used to administer the optimum stress levels to the vine to produce premium quality fruit. Each block is individually nurtured depending on variety, vine age, soil, location, winery requirements and the targeted bottle range.
