Five generations on, the Hardy family continues to nurture that vision and share with the world an array of award-winning wines that proudly carry the Hardy name. From age-old wines brimming with history, to up-and-coming regional vineyards whose potential is just being realized, our winemakers expertly create single varietals and blends, which are all unique, inspired and bursting with character.

Regional Information

Vintage Conditions/Other Winemakers Notes: An excellent year for red wines, with a long growing season consisting of warm mild days. The vineyards enjoyed this weather helping to produce grapes which showed dense colour, flavour, and fine soft tannins. The resultant wines are a mirror image of the fruit with a vibrant core of colour, sweet flavours, and long flavoursome palates.
