Oliver's Taranga

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

"William and Elizabeth Oliver arrived from Scotland in 1839 to settle at McLaren Vale. Six generations later, members of the family are still living on the Whitehill and Taranga farms. The Taranga property has 15 varieties planted (the lion's share to shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, with lesser quantities of chardonnay, chenin blanc, durif, fiano, grenache, mataro, merlot, petit verdot, sagrantino, semillon, tempranillo, viognier and white frontignac). Corrina Wright (the Oliver family's first winemaker) makes the wines, and in 2011 the family celebrated 170 years of grapegrowing." - James Halliday

"(Our mission statement is): to produce ultra-premium age worthy wines that reflect the unique character of the Taranga Vineyard." - Oliver's Taranga
