Hardys ‘Tintara’ McLaren Vale Shiraz 2014

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 25-Jan-2017
Full, even, black-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant and a little restrained in expression, showing fresh, lively dark raspberry fruit entwined with dark florals and spice notes, along with nuances of liquorice and pepper, unfolding hints of minerals. Medium-full bodied, the palate is tightly bound, the flavours of dark raspberries, blackberries, pepper, liquorice and spices quite elegant in expression. The fruit is underlined by fine-grained tannin extraction and the wine flows with good dive and linearity. The blackberry and raspberry flavours carry to a light, but lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, restrained Shiraz with dark raspberry and blackberry fruit detailed by liquorice and pepper on a fine-textured palate. Serve with lamb and beef, and with Middle Eastern fare over the next 5+ years. McLaren Vale fruit, vines 15-70 y.o., fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 month in oak barriques. 17.0+/20 Jan 2017 RRP $24.99
