Oliver's Taranga Shiraz 2013

Gee I enjoyed this. It's wholesome, generous and delicious. The fruit comes from vines 7 to 70 years old.

Sure there's a hit of oak and the fruit is ripe, but the depth and density of the fruit is in the sweet spot.

Dark fruit, plums, cedar and dark chocolate - lots of it. There's a coconut husk thing going on too. It's hard to put down merely because there is so much intrigue. I'm captivated by the density but then a cosy warmy trait gets my attention. I then get distracted by the dark chocolate. Some spice bobs up. This goes on and on. Great drinking. One of those sip all night types. I'd go here again for sure.

Medium to long term aging.

Very good+
