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.

Machine-harvested, destemmed and berry-sorted, one fermenter pressed at 1 degrees baume to barrel for mlf, the other left in the vat for 4 months post-ferment with richer tannin, the former with florals on the bouquet. It is surprising that the tannins needed assistance, but the result speaks for itself with very spicy/bramble flavours and good structure. - James Halliday Wine Companion 2021, 1 August, 2020, 94 Points
