Geoff Hardy’s Middle Hill Shiraz is sourced from the middle hill of the K1 vineyard, a picturesque sandstone ridge producing elegant, spicy, cool climate style Shiraz.
Oak balance is key here, 25% of the crop is matured in new French oak for 18 months before blending with the rest of the wine matured in steel.
Medium to full bodied and deep ruby in colour, the nose offers typical cool climate Shiraz aromas of cherries and peppers, subtle spice notes including cloves and white pepper, and a hint of blackcurrant leaf. Plush but not too heavy in the mouth, it’s a summer fruit bowl of blackberries, blueberrries and red plums, framed by grippy tannins and with hints of nuts, dried fruit and pencil shavings on a pleasantly long finish.
Easy drinking, food friendly and well balanced, try with caramelised pork belly with sticky rice and Asian greens.
