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 Originally from south-western France, Tannat produces powerful and full-bodied red 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 offers soft, attractive aromas of ripe berries with a hint of dried herbs.

Palate The palate delivers a big mouthful of flavour with masses of blackberries and mulberries, followed by a long, lingering and tight finish.

Food Pairings This wine works exceptionally well with Argentinian grilled beef ribs.
