Geoff Hardy's family have been making Australian wine since 1857. Geoff grew up amongst the most distinguished vineyards in our land and he knows from good red wine. He retains access to the finest fruit in McLaren Vale and is the man behind many of our nation's most memorable vintages. Undercover is a moniker that Geoff has assigned to a collation of exceptional parcels, albeit bottled behind an abstruse label to secrete the provenance of a spectacular Shiraz.

The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»

There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz.

The Kalleske Greenock block consists of shallow, sandy loam soil over superb deep red clay and limestones, providing ideal conditions for Shiraz vines. Fruit is picked in separate batches over the course of a week off the auspicious Greenock block. Grapes are destemmed into open top fermenters. Each parcel is fermented separately at warm temperatures with hand pumpovers twice daily for a week or two. After pressing off skins, batches are filled to a high proportion of new French and American oak hogsheads for completion of primary ferments and natural malolactic. Following assemblage, Greenock is matured fourteen months, prior to bottling without any fining or filtration.
Deep purple black colour. Bright and lifted bouquet, blackberries and cherry, fruit cakes and ripe plum, mocha and oriental spice. Ripe black fruit flavours continue on the powerful, full-bodied, intensely pure palate, complimented by subtle oak barrel characters. Natural tannins are lightly chalky but fine, adding structure to support the strength of fruit. A sophisticated wine of great balance, completed by a solid lingering finish.
