Hardy's now retain the finest Cabernet vineyards in Coonawarra and beyond. Fruit is harvested and taken to the Hardy wineworks for crushing, followed by a term of cold soak maceration. Exacting techniques are employed to manage the amount of contact between pulp, juices and skin for optimal extraction of flavour and tannin. Parcels are treated to a combination of new and old world winemaking techniques, inoculated in a combination of fermenters and vinified at controlled temperatures. The finished wine is matured for a year in a selection of fine French oak barriques.
Deeply crimson with garnet hues. Fragrant varietal leaf characters, mints and cassis, liquorice and cedar, blackcurrants and aromatic mocha oak, lifted sage notes. The palate is all about luscious mulberry and blackcurrant flavours, supported by spiced chocolate oak and regional mint, the tannins are seamless, offering terrific line and length. Oomoo will suitably accompany a slow cooked duck or marinated cutlets of lamb.
