The Jaraman range gets its name from an aboriginal word that means seahorses . When Bill Taylor first established the family vineyards in the Clare Valley back in 1969, he knew it was important to secure a water supply. While excavating for a large dam, they discovered tiny fossilised seahorses in the limestone bedrock. They dated back to ancient times when this part of South Australia had lain beneath the ocean. As a tribute, the family decided to adopt these unique creatures to represent their wines and you ll find those little seahorses on every bottle of Taylors wine.
This is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavours of cassis and blackberry fruit along with attractive oak characters of cigar box and tobacco leaf. Overall, the wine is well balanced with complex well-integrated, elegant tannins.
