Oliver’s Taranga Corrina’s Shiraz Cabernet 2021
The Vale’s signature red grape – Shiraz – meets the Vale’s hugely under-rated red grape – Cabernet Sauvignon. The duo make for a dynamic vinous presence in the glass. Shiraz brings a sweet core of black fruits, raspberry and plum with a pastille-like sweetness together with lifted spice. Cabernet makes its presence felt, especially on the bouquet, with a vegetative, leafy intensity, earthiness, briar and bramble. Toasted oak is warm and inviting, a great vehicle for the two grape varieties to shine. Fine tannins make their presence felt, albeit woven discreetly.
