Vintage Oliver’s Taranga DJ Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


This is an outstanding example of New World Cabernet Sauvignon. It is intensely rich with varietal Cabernet notes- concentrated blackcurrant cassis, cigar box, earthy dark fruits, clove, liquorice, tar and sweet spices. The palate has tonnes of power and an integrated tannin line which gives structure. The finish is extremely long, delicious blackberry jam note melded with anise with an earthy intensity. This wine spends 2 years in oak, all of it French and half of it new, half of it pre-used.

2013 was a drought year, resulting in super-low crops with fabulous intensity. These tough conditions are perfect for ripening the 1948 planted Shiraz to perfection. The concentration on the vine has followed through into the resultant wine.

It opens up with aromas of sweet vanilla, char, mulberry jelly and choc mint biscuit. The palate is framed with chewy tannin, layered with black currant, anise, cherry berry and dusty vanillan oak. You will find a distinctive chocolate and toasty note at the finish with a solid structure that benefits its ageing potential. The good news is that with 10 years of bottle ageing, this vintage is ready to drink now or will beautifully aged for another 5-10 years.
