Bec Hardy Village Green Shiraz 2021
A nod to the love of cricket and what could be a finer pursuit? This is dark maroon with plums and chocolate. There are notes of coffee grinds and mocha with cassis and vivid dark fruits plus a lovely bright freshness throughout. The wine is well structured with fine, perhaps ever so slightly grainy tannins. Good acidity and length too so six to eight years ahead, though don’t hesitate to enjoy it today if you wish. Love it now, but one can expect it to improve even further.
