Country: Australia Region: South East Australia
Vintage:2008 Colour:Red Style:Dry
Producer:Thomas Hardy & Company
The fruit for this wine was selected from South-Eastern Australia, including Coonawarra, Padthaway and McClaren Vale. The grapes are harvested at night to retain maximum freshness and varietal character. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel after which a portion of the blend is transferred to oak barrels.
Ageing Potential:3-5 Years
Intense ruby/purple colour are a feature of this rich and powerful wine. Fruit flavours are in balance with the fine grape tannins. A nice toasty oak flavour is evident in this particular vintage resulting from careful maturation in French oak barrels. The style produced is soft and easy to drink yet has a great depth of flavour. Capable of ageing for many years to come.
