WINERY INFORMATION

In 1839 William and Elizabeth Oliver travelled to South Australia from Scotland and eventually settled in 1841 on land at McLaren Vale. Whitehill and Taranga farms, the names given to the northern and southern sections of this land, are located 2 km north of McLaren Vale overlooking the township. Taranga is a corruption of the aboriginal word Tarangk, meaning ‘the middle’ which was used by the Kaurna, a local aboriginal tribe. Sheep and cattle were raised and orchards and vineyards were planted immediately upon arrival and the family prospered.

Both properties are still run by fifth generation descendants of William and Elizabeth, with the Whitehill property utilized for cropping and grazing sheep and cattle and boasting a rejuvenated stone ‘Chaff Shed’ which is used as a function centre and Taranga, which consists of 100 hectares of land, being planted to many different varieties of red and white wine grapes.

Review for Vintage 2016

There is more and more Australian Fiano wines becoming available and this is one of the wines you should try if you are new to the grape or new to Oliver’s Taranga label. This Italian grape has certainly captured Australia’s imagination and heart. Corrina Wright is not only well respected and loved for her contribution to the Australian Wine Industry but also for her role in keeping the innovative spirit alive at the family winery. She does all this whilst paying homage to the rich McLaren Vale history of the family’s wine heritage. While this Fiano is unadorned with additional artifice, using indigenous yeasts, natural acid and no oak, it has developed a spicy, nutty nuance to its zippy citrus and crisp white peach nature. Silky, long and conversational. This is an excellent choice for food or sharing with friends, if you want to. Fish pie topped with crispy herbed breadcrumbs anyone?
