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. While it's early days for this variety in the Wirrega Vineyard, if this wine is anything to go by we certainly have something to look forward to.

Vintage Early winter in 2014 was wetter than usual and the period from August to early January was very dry with above average temperatures. Following some rain and milder temperatures in January, the 2015 harvest started later that month and was quite condensed, resulting in some fabulous white and red wines.

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.
