Hardys HRB Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia
HRB Reserve Blend is sourced from the pick of Hardy vineyards, precious sites which yield harvests of world class Cabernet Sauvignon. Coonawarra brings plum and red cherry fruit to the mix, stealthy tannins and textural richness. Margaret River adds bold bramble and blackcurrant characters, a beautifully perfumed blueberry nose and penetrating fruit driven palate. Held back and bottle aged under the Hardy cellars until current release, HRB represents an indulgement in the Australian Cabernet experience.
Cabernet Sauvignon is assembled from a canon of vineyards which share a synergy, mature vines up to twenty years of age which can provide the quality of fruit worthy of the HRB label. Small, constricted berries with an intensity of flavour and grape tannins and model tannins are selectively harvested off vines planted to a combination of Terra rosa Coonawarra terroir and gravelly Margaret River sandy loams. Fruit is vinified through a combination of old and new world fermenters, followed by a course of full malolactic to soften the tannins. Upon completion, the wines are sent for an extended maturation into a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques, crafted by the finest Bordeaux coopers.
Rich ruby red colour. Complex and aromatic nose, exhibiting chocolate mint and cassis notes, ripe berries, bay leaf and perfumed French oak. A continuity of fruit character, herb and fragrant savouryness on the full bodied, richly textured palate, chocolateyness, plums and red/black cherry notes are supported by fine tannins and an exceptional length of flavour. Match with lamb shanks or beef ragu with baby potato and parsnip mash.
