HARDY'S Eileen Hardy Shiraz, McLaren Vale 2007

<h2>Hardy’s Eileen Hardy Shiraz, McLaren Vale</h2> <p>Eileen Hardy Shiraz is a very opulent perfumed wine with ripe gamey blackberry/liquorice aromas, spicy nuances and fine silky dense tannins. The original Eileen Hardy Bin 80 Shiraz was first released in 1973 to mark family matriarch Eileen Hardy's 80th birthday. After an initial switch in the mid to late 1970s to Cabernet Sauvignon blends, the wine has evolved from a multi-regional blend to an entirely McLaren Vale derived Shiraz based on half century to century-old vineyards. At completion of fermentation, the wine is drained through traditional basket presses into a combination of roughly 25-33% new and seasoned French oak for around 14 to 18 months. This "living breathing creation" reflects a strong house winemaking ethos and exceptional vineyard resources. Since 2007 the wine has been bottled under screw-cap.</p> <div class="btn btn-lang-lg btn-block btn-lang-red" style="max-width: 300px; margin: 30px auto; font-size: 13pt;"><a style="color: #fff;" href="/search?IncludeBuyNow=true&UId=17101&Brands=20092" target="_blank">Shop Hardy’s &gt;</a></div>

Region McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale wine region is located between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf of St Vincent just South of Adelaide in South Australia. Historically it was John Reynell who established Chateau Reynella in 1838, and Thomas Hardy who purchased the historic Tintara in 1876, that kick started the development of the McLaren Vale wine industry. The climate is generally considered warm, although different aspects, altitude and the effect of the cooling ocean breezes moderate the climate within the different sub-regions of the Vale. A large number of soil types are present, although red-brown loams dominate. The biggest viticultural challenge is the potential for drought and the overall lack of water. Full bodied, robust and plush reds typify the McLaren Vale style. Plantings are dominated by Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, with smaller plantings of whites including Semillon, and Chardonnay. More recent plantings of Mediterranean varieties particularly suited to the climate, including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Savagnin and Fiano have also been very successful.

Winery HARDY'S

Hardy’s is a large wine producer with extensive vineyard resources and a long and distinguished history of winemaking in South Australia. Founded in 1853 by winemaking pioneer Thomas Hardy, the company has grown considerably in size and stature over the years gaining a solid reputation primarily for commercial wines. A complicated series of corporate take-overs and acquisitions has seen Hardy’s become part of the huge Accolade Wines group. The wine brand celebrated its 160th Anniversary in 2013, and fifth generation Hardy family member Bill Hardy remains an integral part of the business. Hardy’s flagship Eileen Hardy Shiraz reflects Hardy’s enduring and strong house winemaking ethos and exceptional vineyard resources.
