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. Gold Medal Winner & Best Value at the hotly contested 2016 China Wine & Spirit Awards, the pick of crop this week, seriously.. Sound shiraz for the savvy & shrewd»

Tormaresca Chardonnay IGT CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Puglia Italy
The Apulian shoreline has been visited for millennia by raiders and traders who plundered for booty or traded for profit. The Greeks and returning Crusaders brought grapevines from the east, Chardonnay arrived much later as local growers imported plantings from Le vignoble de Bourgogne. Apulia is surrounded on three sides by sea, the maritime climes stimulate vines and infuse grapes with the prevailing brinyness of salty winds. Just perfect for Chardonnay. A crisp fruit forward Chardonnay that smells of Mediterranean and tastes like the fruit of paradise.

Salento Peninsula is the celebrated heel of the Italian boot, it enjoys a salubrious Mediterranean climate with mild winters and long, hot, dry summers. Chardonnay vines prefer warmer climes, hilly clay and limestone terrains cooled by prevailing breezes. These are the conditions of Salento Peninsula in a nutshell. Chardonnay grapes are picked at full physiological ripeness and softly pressed at the Tormaresca cellars. Musts are chilled to 10°C and cold settled for a natural clarification, vinified in controlled fermenters at a moderate 16°C for optimal extracion of rich fruit esters without any unnecessary uptake of phenolics. Batches are treated to a term of unoaked maturation before assembling into the finished wine.
Light yellow, greenish huets. Predominantly fruity nose with crisp apple characters, citrus fruit rinds, floral notes, acacia flowers and hawthorn. Mouthfilling palate of freshly cut orchard fruit flavours, peaches and applejack, mineral notes and savoury chalkiness, well balanced and lingering on a finish of oyster shell and light balsamic notes.
