Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia
Pertaringa was established during the early 1980s at the intersection of Rifle Range and Hunt Roads. It was a rough time for the Australian wine industry and growers were ripping up their vineyards, some of them old and invaluable, to qualify for government grants. Pertaringa founder Geoff Hardy came from a long line of McLaren Vale winemakers and welcomed the challenge. Hunt & Rifle is a stately Cabernet wine of beautifully fragrant fruit characters and refined, graceful tannins, a suitable match to braised beef cheek sous glaze or succulent sticky pork.
Deep red purple hues. Aromas of blackcurrant, mulberries and mint, cassis and loganberry, supported by chocolate oak and hints of lithe spice. The palate is refined and elegantly structured, blackcurrants and violet, seasoned by a whisp herbaceous notes, supported by a length of rich, finely integrated tannins. The accompaniement of choice to lamb shanks and truffle infused polenta.
