Bec Hardy Pertaringa Yeoman Shiraz 2021


The vines here are of an unknown age, but the vineyard’s owners, the Osmond family, know that they are older than 140 years. Impressive. The vineyard is located to the north of McLaren Flat and the wine is under cork. A dark maroon, this is big, bold and generous. The aromas weave through chocolate, warm earth, bay leaves, cocoa powder, coffee grinds, cassis, plums and dry herbs. There is serious intensity here, fine acidity and impressive length. With ultra-fine tannins, the wine just lingers, long after the last sip. A cracking McLaren Vale Shiraz with an immense future, fifteen to twenty years for the patient.
