The signs came very early that Pertaringa was growing an exceptional quality of Shiraz, trading much of their early vintages to Hardy Wines. Over The Top is a reference to the Pertaringa pursuit of excellence, delivering a taste of McLaren Vale to the enthusiast in demand of superior Shiraz. Pertaringa outperforms many national flagship wines at international competitions, a favourite of Qantas Business Class, the Shiraz of choice to serve alongside trois couleurs pepper steak or seared Wagyu.
Deep, dark scarlet. An elegant bouquet of cherries and raspberry, violet notes and dark chocolate curls, seasoned by black pepper and milled spice. The palate is complex with layers of red and black currants, dark cherries, plum and peppered game characters. A well rounded and balanced McLlaren Vale Shiraz, supported by a length of ripe tannins and aromatic French oak.
