First released in 1989, our award winning Thomas Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon is one of our greatest wines and a fitting tribute to our founder’s passion for winemaking. As south Australia’s first winemaker Thomas’s vision was to ‘create wines that will be prized in the markets of the world’. So continuing his vision, each year we select the best parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coonawara, Margaret River and Frankland River regions to create a refined and elegant wine, rich in flavour and with an outstanding palate.

Deep, bright garnet; an elegant and highly perfumed rendition of this Australian classic, showing pure red fruits, cassis, violets and bath talc; the medium-bodied palate is beautifully detailed, fine-boned and full of silky tannins and seductive fruit; long, expansive subtle and ageworthy.

Winery Tasting Notes
An elegant and refined Cabernet Sauvignon showing a complex amalgam of dark fruits, particularly cassis, with chocolate, mint, leaf, tobacco and sweet spice and cedary oak. This wine shows great length of flavour, sweet fruit, finely honed tannins and a complex oak background.
A fantastic match to slow roasted lamb.
