  • THE BRIEF
  • In 1865, Thomas Hardy held the belief that grapes from different regions could be blended to create wines of superlative depth and complexity; each site complimenting and harmonising with the others, making the whole greater than the sum of its parts. The Heritage Reserve Bin (HRB) range is the modern-day testament to that belief.

    The HRB Cabernet 2016 has no geographic regions attributed to it on the label, but past vintages have been parcels blended from McLaren Vale and Coonawarra in SA and Frankland River in WA. Regardless of where it's from, it is rich and concentrated with depth and complexity, framed by wonderful Cabernet structure.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • A blend of Coonawarra, McLaren Vale and Frankland River Cabernet Sauvignon in a 'best of the best' multi-regional blend.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Classic textbook Cabernet character - Cassis, touch of green pepper, tobacco/cigar box notes. The savoury palate is balanced and concentrated, with good structure and length.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • With the immense heritage behind 6 generations of Hardy’s family winemaking, the business has never looked stronger. A pioneer of the McLaren Vale vineyard region (most notably after purchasing the Tintara winery and vineyards), Hardy’s is now a multi-regional brand with a diverse portfolio of wines. Hardy’s has established vineyard sites across most of southern Australia. Fruit sources include Tasmania, Yarra Valley and Pemberton in WA. Vineyard practices vary, but high profile wines show depth and more regionality than the fruit bowl region wines. The depth of the range is as impressive as it is broad. Thomas Hardy and Eileen Hardy sit at the top of the brand tier with Heritage Reserve Bin, Sir James and Oomoo following on. Nottage Hill has been a big commercial success for Hardy’s. Innovation is at the forefront for wine making practices at Hardy’s. Large scale production has limited boutique influence, but recent years have seen a shift back to smaller ferments, experimentation and more hands-on winemaking for the top tier wines.

    Bin D673. The HRB series focuses on regional blending, yet nothing specified on the label for this. Dark garnet hue; the flurry of dark fruit from blackberries to very ripe plums and spiced compote take in oak flavours of cedar and wood, licorice and soy sauce along the way. Full-bodied, fleshy and ripe with still-firm tannins and a savoury core.'
