History shows that Thomas Hardy first blended grapes from multiple regions in 1865. He believed that by doing so it would complement and enhance the qualities of each region. So began Hardy's blending heritage, and with each new blend a unique code was created starting from A001.

Bin D645, from Margaret River, Coonawarra and Frankland River. Margaret River contributes cassis and herbal notes, Coonawarra choc-mint ripeness and Frankland River power and definition says the back label, and that is exactly right. A seriously good cabernet for prolonged cellaring, but will be approachable soonish. James Halliday, Rating 95, 27th July 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Intense deep garnet core with soft crimson red rim.
Lifted aromas of cassis, mint, bay leaf and black olive are complemented by well integrated French oak & hints of cinnamon spice.
The palate is rounded and rich, with primary fruit in abundance, lots of sweet fruit with flavours of mint, rich blackcurrant, dark fruit and chocolate wrapped into very fine integrated oak, fine silky tannins balanced with freshness and weight of primary fruits.
