- ABV 14.5
- Zalto Denk-Art Universal Glass
94++ - 95 Stuart McCloskey “A multi-regional blend from McLaren Vale, Pyrenees and Clare Valley. The bouquet delivers some real oomph and flows with a very long list, extending from a tart cranberry / redcurrant vibe to plum, dark chocolate, fresh rosemary come bay leaf – there’s a notable herbal flow running throughout the bouquet. The palate changes tact and delivers gentle waves of ripe, red and black fruits. More dark (fruity) chocolate unfolds gracefully which is admirable – I like the gentle grip from the tannins. This one has the ability to age a decade and will be flourishing in 3-5 years. Faultless winemaking and lots of potential for the money. Impressive. Decant for 2-3 hours. Served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware.”
Hardys HRB Shiraz 2017
South Australia, Australia
Thomas Hardy is generally regarded as the fathers of the South Australian wine industry and was one of the early pioneers of McLaren Vale wine, planting some of the earliest vines in region dating back to the mid 1800s. Since those early plantings, the company has continued to grow through several generations of the family.
The widow of Tom Mayfield Hardy, Eileen Hardy, who took up the mantle for a considerable part of the 21st century is a name very familiar to us through their flagship range of wines name Eileen Hardy, featuring a Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
One of our favourite wines which simply blew us away is the Eileen Hardy Chardonnay 2015 which Steven Spurrier described as the "Grange of Australian white wines."
