Pertaringa Two Gentlemen’s GSM 2021


The two gentlemen in this case are Geoff Hardy and Ian Leask, the co-founders of Pertaringa. This wine benefits from a superb vintage for the McLaren Vale region. It spends a year in two-year-old French oak and the colour is a deep magenta. Delightfully perfumed with notes of blackberries, cloves, spices, chocolate and leather. The dark berries continued on to the palate, which is rich and plush. With a supple texture, excellent length and good concentration, this is a well-balanced and delicious red to drink now for five to eight years. Lots to love here.
