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.

The nose offers subtle aromas of plums and dried herbs with a hint of spice in the background. The palate is tasty and rich with plums and spice, complemented by elegant, smooth tannins and a tight, lingering finish.

Dark purple, this is a richly flavoured warm climate Cabernet from McLaren Vale. There is certainly a touch of oak here, but nicely balanced with dark berries, cloves, leather, a hint of compost, blackberries and brambles. The usual process here is for a small percentage of new French oak to be used in maturation, which normally continues for around 18 months. There is good grip here, abundant but very fine tannins with intensity maintained throughout. Seriously enjoyable Cab, one which should drink well for at least a decade.

An excellent balance between the lifted florals, fresh varietal fruit and lovely spiciness with funky complexity and mouth watering acidity. Price: $25.00; May June 2022; Rating: 96 Points; Winestate Magazine

This is splendidly ripe and fragrant with blackcurrant, sweet plum, cedar, subtle tobacco and warm spice aromas. The palate delivers terrific fruit intensity and weight, beautifully complemented by silky texture and fine polished tannins. Stylish and wonderfully composed. Drink: Now to 2032.
