Hardys Tintara Shiraz 2017

A new look label for Hardy’s Tintara along with “new” Senior winemaker Nic Bowen being appointed last year after joining the team in 2012.
With a current customer satisfaction promo running 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, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2017

Deep garnet in colour, there’s plenty of deep strawberry, cherry, plum, strap licorice and molasses  Some rubber-eqsue notes  (I find this often in McLaren Vale), light vanilla and chocolate ganache. Plush and svelte on the palate replete with dark fruits and what feels like chocolately oak indulgence. The tannins are integrating neatly and there’s still a little bright kick of acidity to the  juicy finish.

RRP: $35
Alc: 14.2%
Rating: 17.25/20 (91/100)
