Oliver's Taranga Vineyards Small Batch Cadenzia Grenache

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Gentle and savoury, this earthy, spicy and lightly herbal grenache has a restrained bouquet of sweet redcurrants and red plums. It's elegant and medium to full-bodied, with a long, dusty and fine-grained undercarriage supporting a brightly lit but reserved presence of red, blue and black berries, plums and older cedary oak. It finishes with a fresh acidity, a lively core of fruit and herbal nuances.

Light to medium purple-crimson; a very attractive Grenache that is relatively light-bodied, yet has remarkable intensity and length to its deliciously juicy array of red fruits; the key was the timing of the harvest.

“From an ever-improving producer from McLaren Vale, this is a delicious grenache. Dense, richly flavoured, with good length, nice balance and fine tannins. Vibrant notes of spice, and an attractive mix of blackberry and raspberry.”

Angus Hughson (2009 Vintage) says
A very silky and perfumed example with layers of subtle, almost floral red-fruit characters given some serious interest by earth and spice. Pure and supple with fine grainy tannins, this is made for drinking over the next three years.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
“Genuinely bright and fresh, with a deep core of almost jubube-like plum and cherry fruit lifted by spicy dark floral aromas, harmoniously backed by nuances of briar and blackberry pastille, blueberries and raspberries and framed by fine, drying and gritty tannins. It’s faintly raisined, but long and juicy, finishing soft and savoury.”
