Olivers 2001 Taranga Shiraz
"Winemaker Corrina Rayment (daughter of Colin Rayment from Kay’s, the famed McLaren Vale winery known for their old vine Shiraz) has fashioned a 2001 Shiraz that may be controversial given its fragrant, Cotes du Rhone-like nose of damp earth, ground pepper, and composty black cherry and currant notes with a touch of licorice and truffles in the background. The complex aromatics are followed by a dense, medium to full-bodied, ripe, opulently-styled wine. Although evolved and forward, it is beautifully balanced, and capable of another 7-8 years of top-flight drinking. Readers weaned on European wines will undoubtedly admire this stunning effort for its strikingly French aromatic profile."
