Bec Hardy Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
Story: Bec's estate is called Tipsy Hill and the flora and fauna of this stunning property has been captured on the label of this wine, created by the wonderful Australian artist Denise Faulkner.
Vintage: Good late-winter and early-spring rains led to an even budburst, good early canopy growth and contributed to mitigating frost damage. Dry conditions prevailed from November onwards, with rainfall well below average for the remainder of the growing season. The 2021 vintage has been described by local winemakers as classic Clare with cool and dry conditions producing solid yields and fruit with great varietal character and natural acidity.
Winemaking: Crushed and destemmed. Static stainless steel fermenter. 9 days on skins. 100% Seasoned French Oak Hogsheads.
Nose: The nose displays beautifully complex notes of plums, cassis and a hint of cigar box.
Palate: The palate is smooth and well-rounded with plenty of blackberries and plums, complemented by well-integrated tannins.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2028
