Brand Info After starting up Pertaringa in McLaren Vale and K1 in the Adelaide Hills, Geoff established Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy in 2004. Always a passionate and innovative viticulturist, Geoff's Hand Crafted brand offers one of the broadest and most exciting ranges of alternative and emerging varieties in Australia.

Story Lagrein is a relatively curious north east Italian grape variety well suited to Australian viticultural sites. 

Vintage 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.

Nose The nose offers dense aromas of blackberries, cocoa and rose geranium with notes of cloves and freshly turned earth.

Palate The palate is rich and velvety with notes of boysenberries, plums and white summer truffles, finished off with chalky tannins.

Food Pairings Try with kangaroo fillet medallions served with a green olive, parsley and pine nut pesto.
