Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz 2017
Price: VND 595.000 / bottle
Type of Wine: Red wine
Manufacturer: Wines by Geoff Hardy
Address: 327 Hunt Road, McLaren Vale, SA 5171
Region: McLaren Vale
Story: The Undercover Shiraz is named in recognition of McLaren Vale’s history of supplying other regions with our finest red grapes. Known as the mid palate of Australia, McLaren Vale fruit is well regarded for its ability to improve the quality and richness of wines from other regions.
Vintage: Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.
Nose: The nose offers subtle aromas of plums and herbs with a trace of mint.
Palate: The palate is tight and textural with delightful flavours and elegant vanillin oak
Pairing: Try with venison loin dry rubbed with juniper berry and lavender served on braised cabbage with a blueberry and red wine glaze.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2025
Winemaker: Shane Harris
Oak Maturation: 15% new French and American oak for 18 months
