Overview

The counterpart to the Eileen Hardy Shiraz, the Thomas Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon is made from a selection of the best available fruit parcels, drawn from across South Australia.

A wine built for the long haul, it nevertheless has approachability as a younger wine, due to its fruit weight. Typically matured in barrel for 18 months to two years before release.

Expert Reviews

Medium red; showing appropriate development. Rich, chocolate, earth and berry fruit marries with sweet oak on the bouquet. The palate is starting to mature, with a mix of ripe chocolate and berry fruit neatly balanced by abundant sweet oak and soft tannins. Good mouthfeel; at the start of its journey. A relatively modest show record of two gold and three silver medals. Rating 91, Drink by 2008, Tasted Jun 2000, James Halliday

Winery Tasting Notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon shows great balance and persistency of flavour. Produced using traditional open fermenters and basket pressed to ensure a rich, full bodied wine with soft mouth filling tannins.

The blackberry and redcurrant fruit flavours with a minty lift are complexed by smooth, vanillin oak characters.

Matured in a combination of French and American Oak for 18 months, this classic Coonawarra Cabernet can be enjoyed now or successfully cellared for 10 years.
