This multi award winning Shiraz has been widely acclaimed as one of the great value red wine buys in Australia and abroad. Hardys take the pick of the crop from the best vineyards in McLaren Vale and set it aside for Oomoo, a Shiraz of reliability and abundance of ripe fruit flavours, stylishness and satisfying, savoury tannins.

    All of Hardy's viticultural resources retain strong regional identity, varietal purity and requisite charm. The winemaking team endeavour to assemble those parcels which can achieve a profound construct in the enduring Hardy's style. Harvests of Shiraz, some of which are picked by hand, are collated off vines up to forty years of age, planted to fine McLaren Vale soils ranging from deep sands to shaley red clays over limestone. Fruit is vinified in static fermenters while being treated to a course of rack and returns for optimal extractions and varietal complexity. Upon completion of ferments and malolactic, Oomoo is matured in a selection of well seasoned French and American oak barrels.
    Deep red with ruby hues. The nose is loaded with ripe red berries and spice notes, underscored by classic McLaren Vale dark chocolate characters, festive cake and vanillin oak. A full flavoured, rich and mouthfilling palate, lingering with concentrated plum spice characters over a harmonious integration of soft, fine tannins. Luscious flavours of black cherry and plum, panforte and chocolate on a generous mouthfeel, before a fine, lingering finish.
