Hardy’s long have a history of blending by taking the best grapes from the best regions and creating exceptional wines. HRB stands for Heritage Reserve Bin and the label has tactile Dionysos astride a barrel. Unfortunately, there’s no actual region or area listed on the label, save for it coming from “the best cool-climate premium viticultural regions of Australia.” That could be 2, 3 or even more places…but guessing Tasmania and Great Southern at the least. Anyways.
Hardy’s, HRB D671, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, 2015
Deep satsuma plum, blueberry, blackberry, baked biscuity balanced oak, warm spice. Fine, mesh tannins give layers of depth. Plenty length of flavour with a delicious kick of dark berry fruit. Serious and cellar worthy.
