The HRB (Heritage Reserve Bin) premium series from Hardys represents the art of blending different terroirs, in this case Chard from Pemberton and Adelaide Hills. It is a remarkable wine with a nose that shows citrus and summer peach with subtle toasted vanilla, brioche and light spice notes. It is purely elegant on the palate with lemon-citrus-peach flavours, a racy vein of acidity, deft oak spice, and length through the finish. Serve with lobster or chicken with tarragon and sweet potato.
This Old Vines Grenache comes from a subregion of Aragon in the central eastern region of Spain. It is dominated by deep, dark fruit with black cherry and plum backed up by spicy and herbal notes, solid tannic structure, good acidity and firm dry grip on the finish. It pairs very well with spicy BBQ spare ribs.
Intense fruity aromas with loads of juicy dark plum, berry, leather and spice flavours, bright acidity, soft tannins, firm underlying structure, a nice edginess and a long, mocha-filled finish. A fantastic value and perfect for grilled lamb or wild boar. A blend of Touriga Nacional and Alfrocheiro.
Shows plenty of character and some complexity derived from bottle age. Developed dark cherry fruit comes in a robust, slightly rustic old-fashioned style that will pair well with full-flavoured grilled or braised red meat dishes.
Enticing, with black cherry, plum and spice flavours, firm but supple tannins; rich yet fresh with a nice grippiness on the long finish. Definitely a meat wine.
Opens with aromatic citrus and tropical fruit scents following through with similar flavours, refreshing acidity and a touch of stony mineral on the palate.
This is an intriguing wine from a lesser-known region southwest of Bordeaux. The 5 grapes include Bordeaux standards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc and Merlot together with Syrah and local variety Abouriou. The result is harmoniously balanced with generous red and dark fruit, supple tannins and attractive spice.
