Brand Info In 1986, Geoff Hardy finally found the ideal location for producing cool climate award-winning wines in the Adelaide Hills. This vineyard later became known as the K1 by Geoff Hardy vineyard since this unique site was the first commercial planting of vines in the Kuitpo region.

Story The Middle Hill Shiraz is sourced from the middle hill of the K1 vineyard, a picturesque sandstone ridge producing elegant, spicy, cool climate style Shiraz.

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 spicy aromas of cinnamon, cloves and notes of white pepper with red cherries and plum fruit.

Palate The palate is balanced with notes of cloves, black pepper and apricot with aromas of candied orange. This wine is medium-bodied with a silky mouth feel and well integrated tannins.

Food Pairings The Middle Hill Shiraz is an easy drinking, food friendly and well balanced Shiraz. Try it with dishes such as caramelised pork belly with sticky rice and Asian greens.
