It’s no secret that McLaren Vale is home to some of the best Shiraz in Australia. And this wine, (formerly known as Hand Crafted Shiraz by Geoff Hardy) is no exception.

Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.

The palate is beautifully lively with lashings of plums and a crisp, lingering finish.
This rich Shiraz is best enjoyed with a home made Beef Wellington. Bon Appetit!
