2016 Pertaringa Yeoman Shiraz
Wine Rating 
 
97

This wine pays homage to the family of Geoff Hardy with grapes sourced from the vineyard planted by his great, great grandfather over 100 years ago.

This is a wine to sit and contemplate, evolving to show subtle nuance after nuance over time with a nose that initially shows blackberry and plum fruit which over time melds with cedar, earth and chocolate.

It’s hard to describe a wine of this stature, it keeps building with a milk chocolate richness that is contrasted by tightly bound blackberry and plum and interjected by spice. A drying and moreish finish with a saline note that draws you back for more. Significant length is an undestatement.

A wine of epic proportions.
