Hand Crafted McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018

Wines By Geoff Hardy Stand: 4205

Story: It’s no secret that McLaren Vale is home to some of the best Shiraz in Australia. And this Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy Shiraz is no exception.

Vintage: The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose: The nose offers appealing aromas of cherries and plums with a hint of spice.

Palate: The palate is vibrant with plenty of plums and a touch of black pepper, followed by a lingering finish.

Food Pairings: This rich Shiraz is best enjoyed with a home made Beef Wellington. Bon Appetit!
