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 A testament to the co-founders of Pertaringa, Geoff Hardy and Ian Leask - true gentlemen showing depth and generosity of character, just like our GSM.

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 complex aromas of red berries, a hint of olives and fresh herbs accompanied by a dash of pepper.

Palate The palate is medium-bodied and smooth, yet lively and dynamic with masses of interesting flavours and a nice, lingering finish.

Food Pairings Try with crispy pork belly with a black vinegar, pomegranate and star anise glaze served with wild rice, Asian mushrooms and Chinese broccoli.
