Bec Hardy Garden Series Shiraz Tempranillo McLaren Vale 2023


From the sandy soils of the family’s vineyard in the Blewitt Springs sub-region, fermentation of the two varieties was done discretely, followed by subsequent blending. With eight days on skins before pressing to older French hogsheads for eight months maturation. Vibrant purple, this is still very young but delightfully fresh. Notes of plums, dark berries, smoked meats and florals, there is an attractively supple texture with decent length and very soft tannins. Like this a lot. Delicious now and for the next three to four years.
