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.

2020 was a challenging vintage in a challenging world. There was a significan lack of rain through winter and spring, and an early heat spike during grape set that resulted in loss of crop. Hence, 2020 was an extremely low tonnage vintage, all while a pandemic raged. Small crops mean great quality though, so Oliver's Taranga loss is your gain!

Solid regional shiraz. Blueberry, nori, pepper grind, clove and salami scents. Pulpy. Juicy. Corralled by well-judged tannins. The acidity, a bit too perky, as is the wont here. But delicious drinking all the same. - Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion, 3 August 2022
