In 1865 Thomas Hardy had the foresight to begin blending grapes from different regions, believing that the blending would enhance the different qualities of the grapes. His vision proved to be right and it has since become the inspiration for the Heritage Reserve Bin (HRB) range.

Hand picked across a vineyard that is a century and a quarter old. The tannins here are increasingly refined and tautly furled by apposite extraction and long maturation in high-quality French oak. Violet lift. Further scents of blueberry, mulberry, clove, pepper grind and nori. The cedar and mocha-laden tension across the finish is this rich wine's totem. Oak, of course, but seamlessly handled, while auguring well for a long unravelling during extended time in the cellar.

Dark and youthful in the glass, ageing gracefully. Brooding dark fruit aromas, satsuma plum, mulberry, maraschino cherry, spice, licorice, cola and sweet oak. Rich, layered, dark and powerful on the palate, with lashings of plum, blackberry, creamy sweet oak and spices. Plenty of plush, dark fruit here, all backed up with an ample lick of shapely tannins and acid drive. Date Tasted: April 2021; Drink: 2022 to 2037; Price: $154.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points; Aaron Brasher; The Real Review
