Wines by Geoff Hardy represents the 160-year-old winemaking tradition of the Hardy family. Renowned vigneron Geoff Hardy founded the company in 1980, when he and his fellow viticulturist - Ian Leask, acquired the Pertaringa vineyard in McLaren Vale. Since then, he has planted more than 3,000 hectares of vineyards, in addition to releasing the GMH and Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy wine ranges.
Pertaringa Lakeside Red Meritage is a stylish blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec grapes. The resulting blend showcases a deep red colour lined by black hues. The fragrant nose exudes lively aromas of blackberries, plums, cherries and dark chocolate. The plush palate is rife with rich flavours of dark chocolate and black forest cake, coupled with wild berry undertones. These flavours and fragrances combine to offer a beautiful structure, ending the wine in a lengthy finale. This tempting red blend can either be relished fresh upon release, or within a cellaring term of 8 years. Drink it with spinach, caramelised garlic, and red pepper pithivier, to discover its grand flavours.
