In 1980, Geoff Hardy left the then family company, Thomas Hardy & Sons, to make his own way in the Australian wine world. The same year, he established Pertaringa and since then the Pertaringa vineyards in the foothills behind McLaren Vale have continued to produce some of the region's finest wines. The soils are enriched from the hills above and the cooler climate, further tempered by the sea breezes off St Vincent's Gulf, sets the scene for high quality wine grapes.
Rich and ripe - dark and brooding with slightly jammy/cordial like sweet fruit characters on the nose and a lovely, long and lingering full flavoured palate. Price: $40.00; Rating: ★★★★★; Top in Category (97-100 Points); Winestate Magazine; September 2020
This is bold and confident, and very delicious. The inviting bouquet shows black/blueberry, vanillin oak, dark cocoa, anise and floral characters. It’s magnificently concentrated on the palate, delivering power as well as refinement, beautifully enhanced by plush mouthfeel and silky tannins. Rich, seamless and immensely seductive. Drink: Now to 2033. Price: $40.00; Rating: 95 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
