Hardys Heritage Reserve Bin Shiraz McLaren Vale 2016
2016 was a vintage of high yields yet high quality. Cool, wet winter, followed by a warm spring retained enough soil moisture to encourage healthy vine growth. Nearing harvest ripening was given a little boost by a bout of warm weather with some sporadic rain events. Across the three regions, the fruit was healthy and mature at complementary admirable sugar levels coming into harvest season.
Smooth, silky and dense with a long elegant finish. Highly polished wine where the fruit is the highlight and the oak provides a complimentary shell which forms the body of the wine.
