2018 HRB Shiraz
History shows that Thomas Hardy first blended grapes from multiple regions in 1865. Thomas believed that blending grapes with different characteristics would complement and enhance the qualities of each region. So began Hardy’s rich blending heritage; with each new blend a unique code was created starting from A001.
A truly harmonious wine, blending together Shiraz from some of the greatest wine regions of Australia in order to highlight the greatest attributes of those regions in a way that complement one another. For this 2018 vintage of HRB Shiraz, fruit was sourced from premium vineyards in McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Frankland River.
Colour: Deep red purple with scarlet hue
Bouquet: Blackberry, mulberry and plum with pepper, violets, milk chocolate and liqurice
Palate: Fresh and intense fruit flavours dominate this layered and elegant wine. Violets, black olive and chocolate notes add complexity.
‘A rich & powerful multi regional blend shiraz showing impressive depth of dark berry fruit flavour. The palate is textured, complex with layers of flavour & exquisite balance. Delicious with Beef & onion pie’ - Nigel Sneyd MW, Winemaker
