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  It's no secret that McLaren Vale is home to some of the best Shiraz in Australia. And this Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy Shiraz is no exception.

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 is looking great.

Nose The nose offers vibrant fruits, including spicy plum, red cherries and apricots.

Palate The palate is lively and juicy with loads of plums, mulberries, spice and soft, subtle tannins.

Food Pairings This rich Shiraz is best enjoyed with a home made Beef Wellington. Bon Appetit!
