2016 Hardys HRB Shiraz

2016 Hardys HRB Shiraz

Bin D676. A three-way regional blend from McLaren Vale, Clare Valley and the Pyrenees, the best of each create a complete whole. Excellent dark purple-black hue; just the right amount of spice, dark fruits, perfume and flavour. Surprisingly medium-bodied, although plenty of depth and complexity, with finely chiselled tannins and a persistent finish. Best of all, savoury rather than just fruit driven.

DESCRIPTION
  • 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.

    From parcels of fruit sourced from McLaren Vale, Clare Valley and the Pyrenees in Victoria, there's a wonderful generosity to the 2016 HRB Shiraz, which belies its elegant, and structured mid-weight palate. Wonderfully detailed and well-pitched, it's a wine to sit and think with... (and drink!).

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES


    TASTING NOTES

    Generous and bright red and black fruits with baking spices and darker plum notes. The ripe palate is well-pitched with a nice pencil-lead mineral quality, and firm tannin structure. Nice complexity on the finish too.
