A new label and bottle for a blend of McLaren Vale’s staples. Senior winemaker for Hardys Tintara is Nic Bowen after joining the team in 2012.
Until the end of November 2020, Hardys are also offering a money back guarantee if you’re unhappy with the wine for any reason.
Hardys Tintara, Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro, McLaren Vale, 2018
Deep ruby/garnet, core to rim. Spiced, rhubarb jam, earthy raspberry jube, graphite, chocolate, licorice, plum and dark cherry. Medium full bodied, with an earthy waxiness. Plenty of spiced plummy chocolatey depth with earthy McLaren Vale spine. The finish carries well with charry oak and mineral edge. It’s a little rough around the edges but certainly not without charm
Rating: 17.5/20 (92/100)
