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 The Yeoman is a statement of the best wine from an outstanding vintage, be it the Shiraz from 2015 or something else in future vintages. We won’t make it every year; we’ll only make it when it’s right to make it.

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 The nose offers concentrated aromas of plums, black cherries, apricots and charry tobacco.

Palate The palate is beautifully balanced with intense notes of plums, liquorice and cloves, followed by fine-grained tannins and lingering toasty notes.

Food Pairings Try this wine with venison medallions with a parsnip puree and roasted baby beetroots.
