Overview

Eileen Hardy was our family matriarch, an indomitable spirit and the first lady of Australian wine. Since taking over at the helm from her late husband Tom Mayfield Hardy, Eileen continued to build the Hardys brand and was recognised with an OBE for her outstanding contribution to the Australian wine industry.

Her unwavering dedication to the family led to her four children honouring her 80th birthday with a special vintage, which was served at her legendary open house birthday party. The wine was so well received by Eileen and her guests that supplies soon dwindled and an award winning icon was born.

Expert Reviews

Here the Yarra Valley provides 70%, Tasmania 30%, both wild-fermented, the Yarra component with 35% whole bunches, Tasmania with 25% whole bunch inclusion in the ferment. It has glorious colour, and a profusion of strawberry and blueberry fruit sustained by tannins so supple they provide a silky conclusion. Rating 96 - Drink by 2025, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2014)
