Brand Info In 1986, Geoff Hardy finally found the ideal location for producing cool climate award-winning wines in the Adelaide Hills. This vineyard later became known as the K1 by Geoff Hardy vineyard since this unique site was the first commercial planting of vines in the Kuitpo region.

Story Open canopies and low yields at the Kuitpo vineyard ensure that our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are matured to optimum ripeness.

Vintage The 2016 vintage was in general very mild with low rainfall. The lack of rain looked like it would result in a quick harvest, but a big downpour in early February made sure the vintage was more evenly spread out. The yields were up on the couple of previous years and the quality looks great.

Nose This wine offers intense aromas of cassis and damson fruit with notes of cedar and cigar box.

Palate The palate is elegant with dark chocolate, violets, blackberries and cassis, complemented by fine tannins and a graceful length.

Food Pairings Try the K1 Cabernet Sauvignon with a herb crusted lamb rack.
