Ox Hardy Upper Tintara Vineyard Shiraz 2021


This vineyard is situated in the Blewitt Springs sub-region, specifically three blocks, known as Moreton Bay, Block 12 and Big Hill. The cuttings for these blocks came from vines originally planted back in 1891. It is not a stretch to imagine that if someone stuck a knife into Andrew Hardy, he would bleed McLaren Vale Shiraz. A deep maroon/red. Rich and concentrated, there is serious intensity here with fine balance, silky tannins and very good length. Flavours of dark cherries, mocha and bay leaves topped with raspberries and a hint of aniseed and coffee beans. This is a cracking example of McLaren Vale Shiraz, and it is brilliant value. The finish lingers for ages and the wine should provide pleasure for ten to fifteen years.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
