Brand Info Shortly after leaving the family company in 1980, Geoff Hardy established Pertaringa, which has since continued to produce some of McLaren Vale's finest wines. The name Pertaringa means 'belonging to the hills' and originates from the local Kaurna indigenous language.

Story Family owned and operated, Pertaringa has branched out from its McLaren Vale roots to explore the uniqueness and diversity of South Australia’s iconic wine growing regions. Gruner Veltliner is an Austrian variety that’s found a new home in the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills, producing crisp and elegant white wines.

Vintage The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose The nose possesses a generosity of intent with a white pepper inflection. It conjures up a sense of white and light, spice on length, with rockmelon, green apple and nashi pear.

Palate The aromas continue on the textured palate and one can see why this variety, originally hailing from Austria, has a certain affinity for Australian shores.

Food Pairings Try this wine with an Asian chicken stir fry with bok choy and cashews.
