Ox Hardy Upper Tintara Shiraz
When Thomas Hardy purchased the Upper Tintara Vineyard in McLaren Vale in 1871, it heralded the foundation of one of Australia’s greatest winemaking dynasties. Today the picturesque 115 Ha property is still owned by the Hardy family, and consists of native protected scrub and approximately 45 Ha of vines, including millennium Shiraz plantings which are the fruit source of this wine.
Deep bright colour. Generous black fruits with savoury, fragrant black pepper. Rich, elegant, dark fruits. Spicy and luscious, finishing dry with pepper and abundant tannin.
